Everybody used to do the twist The mashed potato, and it moves like this The funky chicken, monkey too Wasn't nothing they would not do But there's a new dance no one can stop A leap for joy we call the Holy Ghost Hop
Get ready, hold steady Don't deny it, just try it Be bold now, let it go now Give the Holy Ghost control now
CHORUS Rejoice with a grateful heart Rejoice to the Holy One Rejoice, let your praises fill the air Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice, rejoice Everybody praise Him and rejoice
Hey all you brothers and you sisters too Don't let tradition tell you what to do Release your worries and your fears 'Cause we've been hoppin' in the church for years If King David was here I know that he Would do the Holy Ghost Hop with me!
Now get ready, hold steady Don't deny it, just try it Be bold now, let it go now Give the Holy Ghost control now
Lord, I will praise You And I'll exalt you forever I'll magnify You and I will love You With all of my heart and my soul and my mind
We're not through, more to do Don't be tame, praise His name We're not done now, just begun now, It's time to have some fun now!
