Spirit of God unseen as the wind – You’ll know the tune even if the words aren’t familiar.
Margaret Old, a Sunday School teacher and on the staff of the Scripture Union, wrote these gentle words to that well-known tune of the Skye Boat Song. This link will take you to both words and tune: https://hymnary.org/media/fetch/190482/hymnary/media/SCM/SpiritOfGod-SkyeBoatSong.pdf

You shall go out with joy – One of our favourites, especially with the clapping!
This slowish version will remind you how it goes and it has the words:
But if you want to speed up and clap, this is the one for you! Can you keep up?
