'By The Spirit' Pat Barrett Acoustic Performance

Pat Barrett leads us in worship with an acoustic performance of ‘By The Spirit.’ As we surrender all to the Lord, He will accept us just as we are.


“I’m standing here with open arms
I’m learning where my help comes from
I’m singing like the battle’s won
I’m learning where my strength comes from”

Christian singer-songwriter Pat Barrett is most notable for penning the modern day worship song, ‘Good Good Father.’ After fellow Christian artist Chris Tomlin recorded the tune, it became a mega-hit performed all over the world.

Now, he is enjoying a thriving solo career with his latest album, Act Justly, Love Mercy, Walk Humbly.

Today, he’s at New Song Café for a stunning acoustic performance of ‘By The Spirit.’

“Not by power not by might
By the Spirit of God up to the Heavens
I lift my eyes, fully surrendered
All of my life”

On Instagram, Pat shared the story behind the song. “I want to live my life both awake to and dependent on the Holy Spirit. I’m not really interested in any other way. If and when I veer from that path, I pray the mercy of God leads me swiftly back.”

There is no doubt that God loves us despite our sins and shortcomings. His unconditional love reigns down on each and every one of us and that is reason to praise, indeed!

John 6:63 : It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.”
