Lyrics:

VERSE 1
I don’t need the smoke or mirrors
‘Cause I know there’s a God who’s real
I don’t need the lights to fool me
‘Cause I have seen the God who heals

PRE CHORUS
I know when I ask I’ll receive it
‘Cause You’re not a God who withholds
I hear You say just believe me

CHORUS
I need a Holy Ghost, awaken in my soul
I need a love that glows, rattling my bones till the evidence shows
I need a Holy Ghost, awaken in my soul
I need a heart on fire that’ll never grow tired wherever I go
I need a Holy, Holy Ghost, I need a Ghost
Holy, Holy, Ghost, I need a Ghost

VERSE 2
I don’t need a counterfeit comfort
‘Cause nothing in this world remains
I need something stronger than lightning
Flowing inside of these veins

VERSE 3
Gimme the real thing, you keep the counterfeits
Something that’s tailor-made, not something that kinda fits
Beatin’ on Heaven’s door until I encounter it
Somebody tell the Lord, get used to the sound of it

Hey, had to get my weight up, purpose wouldn’t wait up
Stuck between my flesh and my spirit, gotta stay prayed up
‘Cause the enemy doin’ the most
He better keep that same energy when we alone
‘Cause I refuse to be a enemy in my own home

  1. A ghost is not, the Ghost. Be careful not to sing 'i need a ghost' for there are many ghosts/ spirits around. And u do not want any other spirit but the Holy Spirit alone, unless you want to be possessed to serve the devil.
    I do not understand how u come with these kind of lyrics when you cud have easily made it 'the ghost' instead of 'a ghost' if your mind was sound.

  2. I heard your song and was put off by it. You could have easily sang, "I need the Holy Ghost" as you could, "I need a ghost". That sounds like you are invoking something evil instead of the third part of the Holy Trinity. The beat is catchy but we need more than "catchy" to save the lost.

  3. Hello everyone, these specific songs have touched my heart, besides making me happy, they have inspired me to make my own music and also a couple of covers I hope one day to be known to continue showing what I know I can give, thanks for your music, greetings to all

  4. "I NEED A GHOST" title sounds like they are invoking an another spirit. They should change the title. Plus this sounds like rock music. This is not true worship or praise music. This is some new age stuff. I sense darkness even when the song opens up. My spirit does not sit well with this entire song or title at all. . Then I look and see that it's by Bethel. Go figure. It's sad that as a church we don't even exercise spiritual discernment anymore. We just like anything just because its our favorite worship ministry or worship leader. Not everything is of God brothers and sisters!!! We are commanded to worship God in Spirit and in TRUTH!!! We have to worship God in a way that is pure, holy and pleasing to Him. Not in our own way.

    Not all worship will be accepted by God. Some worship is actually abominable, vain and a stench to His nostrils. While other worship is a sweet smell of aroma and savor coming up to His throne. Wake up church!!! This is why there is so much deception in the church now. We are open to anything. We don't guard our hearts anymore. We think everything is God. Just because they say the word "HOLY" that means its of God??? Why would they say "I need a holy ghost" and name it "I need a ghost??? Why not I need "THE HOLY GHOST" Who gave them the inspiration to write this song? Was it the Holy Spirit Himself or a different spirit? Think about that. Wake up lukewarm sleeping Bride. Jesus is coming!!! REPENT!!!!!

  5. Don't take this personnel brothers and sisters we serve a mighty God (YHWH) and the Holy Spirit is also God He is the power and powerful Spirit but not a ghost.
    Let us as Christians be alert brothers and sisters because there is a lot of deception yes even in the church and also in the gospel music industry.

  6. John Chapter 12
    1 Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to Bethany, where Lazarus was which had been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
    2 There they made him a supper; and Martha served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the table with him.
    3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odor of the ointment.
    4 Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him,
    5 Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence and given to the poor?
    6 This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
    7 Then said Jesus, Let her alone: against the day of my burying hath she kept this.
    8 For the poor always ye have with you; but me ye have not always.
    9 Much people of the Jews therefore knew that he was there; and they came not for Jesus’ sake only, but that they might see Lazarus also, whom he had raised from the dead.
    10 But the chief priests consulted that they might put Lazarus also to death;
    11 Because that by reason of him many of the Jews went away, and believed on Jesus.
    12 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
    13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.
    14 And Jesus, when he had found a young donkey, sat thereon; as it is written,
    15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on a donkey’s colt.
    16 These things understood not his disciples at the first: but when Jesus was glorified, then remembered they that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things unto him.
    17 The people therefore that was with him when he called Lazarus out of his grave, and raised him from the dead, bare record.
    18 For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.
    19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.
    20 And there were certain Greeks among them that came up to worship at the feast:
    21 The same came therefore to Philip, which was of Bethsaida of Galilee, and desired him, saying, Sir, we would see Jesus.
    22 Philip cometh and telleth Andrew: and again Andrew and Philip tell Jesus.
    23 And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.
    24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
    25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
    26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honor.
    27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
    28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
    29 The people therefore, that stood, by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spoke to him.
    30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
    31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
    32 And I, If I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
    33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.
    34 The people answered him, We have heard out of the law that Christ abideth for ever: and how sayest thou, The Son of man must be lifted up? who is this Son of man?
    35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you, Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
    36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spoke Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them.
    37 But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him:
    38 That the saying of Esaias the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke, Lord, who hath believed our report? and to whom hath the arm of the Lord been revealed?
    39 Therefore they could not believe, because that Esaias said again.
    40 He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them.
    41 These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spoke of him.
    42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also so many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:
    43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.
    44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.
    45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.
    46 I am come a light in the world. That whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
    47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
    48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
    49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
    50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak thereof, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

  7. PLEASE CHANGE THE TITLE TO WHAT IS IN LINE WITH THE SONG. please do not lead people into a dark place with your title. I only clicked because I was surprised at the title. I am a regular player of your worship music and I sing them in church. So I know what harm this title in the video will cause. Please change to the real title " I need the HolyGhost"

  8. Is this on purpose lol? You sang out holy ghost but you purposely took out "holy" in the title? What for? To create confusions and conflicts? Or its simply a socal experiment, to see how people react to it hahaha. Unnecessary
