The CD continues down the path of praise with the second song "Jehovah Is Here," featuring magnificent keyboards, strong bass lines, and power-packed drum tracks with mighty vocals. The CD moves into the third song, a long-standing staple in worship, "I Surrender All," that reminds you of its beauty, and pushes you over the edge with a contemporary twinge. The song's distinct vocals are piercing to the soul as they blend with such force and harmonic grace. The forth song surely to be one of the highlights of this CD is the title cut "Only By The Spirit," that starts with an "Oh" call to the Holy Spirit, imbedded with ethnic rhythms of drums and congas, and vocal chants of power, healing, and fire that comes only by the Spirit! The fifth song, "I Will Acknowledge You/T'is So Sweet," reveals one of God's truly anointed psalmists as her vocals ascend to heaven and descend to reach an earthly realm with strong convictions and life-changing exhortation.
