​By My Spirit

This song is by Debbie McClendon and appears on the album Count It All Joy (1987).

It's not by might
It's not by power
But by My Spirit, my spirit saith the Lord

By the Spirit brother Joshua
Led the children up to Jericho
After marchin' 'round the wall they gave a mighty shout
And the Spirit of God shook the walls of the city down

By the Spirit little shepherd David
Fought the champion of the Philistines
Now, even though Goliath was a giant man
By the Spirit of God little David took him down

It's not by might
It's not by power
But by My Spirit saith the Lord

So fill me with the fire (fill me with the fire)
Of Your precious Holy Spirit (let it burn in me)
Fill me up then even higher
Let the power of Your Spirit fall down on me

By the Spirit the disciples gathered
A hundred-twenty in the upper room
The suddenly down from heaven came a violent rushin' wind
By the Spirit of God they were speakin' in other tongues

You see, it's not by might
It's not by power
But by My Spirit saith the Lord

So fill me with the fire (fill me with the fire)
Of Your precious Holy Spirit (let it burn in me)
Fill me up then even higher
Let the power of Your Spirit fall on me

Fill me with the fire
Let it burn in me)
Fill me up then even higher
Let the power of Your Spirit fall down on me

It's not by might
It's not by power
But by My Spirit saith the Lord

It's not by might
It's not by power
But by My Spirit saith the Lord

It's not the things you do
It's not the things you say
But by My precious Holy Spirit

(It's not by might, It's not by power)
It's not by power
It's by My Spirit

It's not the things you want
It's not the things you have
But by My Spirit, Lord, saith the Lord

It's not by might
It's not by power
But by My Spirit saith the Lord

It's not by might
It's not by power
But by My Spirit saith the Lord
