I WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN
Betty Johnston and Joan Babcock wrote this song in 1997 to sing at one of our church services.
FILL ME HOLY SPIRIT, FILL ME
Lyrics to verses and music written by Joan Babcock. How it happened: "Brother Ed read this little poem (chorus part) one Sunday evening after his message on the Holy Spirit. I thought, "that would make a wonderful praise chorus", and the melody just popped into my head. After I sang it for him, he told me that he thought it needed a couple verses as well, so this is what God gave me."
