Words & music by Steve Thorngate

lyrics

The Spirit is poured on all flesh.
The Spirit is poured on all flesh:
On sons and on daughters,
On all kinds of others,
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh.

Will your elders start dreaming afresh
When the Spirit is poured on their flesh?
Will they fly through the ages
to write some new pages?
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh.

Got a daughter? Oh, hear what she says
When the Spirit is poured on her flesh.
Don't you tell her to stop it—
she might be a prophet!
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh.

Will God raise up your body to bless
With the Spirit poured out on your flesh?

When the broken and chained and oppressed
Feel the Spirit poured out on their flesh,
Will they sing songs of freedom
Demanding you see them?
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh.

And those people you hate through and through—
Yeah, the Spirit is poured on them, too.
You can kick; you can scream. Sure
Won't change God's big dream for
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh.

And the Spirit might not take requests,
Might just show up and rain on some flesh.

All those creatures we think we possess—
The Creator created their flesh.
Put them right in the garden
To love and take part in
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh.

Oh, it probably will make a mess;
We'll have Spirit all over our flesh.
The Spirit is mighty
But not very tidy.
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh.

Tell me what do you think you will do
When the Spirit is poured out on you?
Will you step in the river
Of God that delivers
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh?

The Spirit is poured on all flesh.
The Spirit is poured on all flesh:
On bachelors and widows,
On grownups and kiddos,
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh.

On heroes and villains,
On ringers and fill-ins,
On strangers and neighbors,
Bosses and labor,
On kin and on colleagues,
On Finns and Bengalis—
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh, all flesh,
All flesh, all flesh, all flesh.
