Gospel At The Jazz Festival

The spirit is alive and well.

You can feel it working.

Through the crowd they swell.

Their love for the Lord apparent.

Children while eating and at play.

Are very happy to be right here.

I watch their little bodies sway.

And that's such a joy to see.

People every where soaking it all in.

Friends and family celebrating life.

Basking in the glory and not sin.

That is something I am glad to see.

Songs that are powerfully moving from the heart.

It is wonderful to sit here and just listen.

I am so happy to be here to be a small part.

The spirit of the lord always is so uplifting.
