What is this
That I feel deep inside
That keeps setting my soul afire
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
It won't let me
Hold my peace

What is this
That makes people say I'm mad and strange
What is this
That makes me want to run on in Jesus' name
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
It won't let me
Hold my peace

It makes me love all my enemies
And it makes me love my friends
And it won't let me be ashamed
To tell the world that I've been born again

OOOOH! What is this!

What is this
That makes me do right when I would do wrong
What is this
When I'm down low, it gives me a song
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
Whatever it is
It won't let me
Hold my peace

It makes me love all my enemies
And it makes me love my friends
And it won't let me be ashamed
To tell the world that I've been born again

OOOOH! What is this!

    I first heard this song back in 1985 after I got saved and filled with the Holy Spirit. 28 years later, under attack with a health issue, I heard "What is this?" and wrote the title down. Walter Hawkins anointed production reminded me of who He Is, and the Hope He gives us in areas of not understanding. I got to get the CD!

    Singing What is this..................... It makes me love all my enemies.
    And it makes me love my friends.
    And it won't let me be ashamed.
    To tell the world that I've been born again.

    It is that fire that you get after you've been saved, truly saved. The bad things and habits you used to do have been overcome by the love of god and his spirit that lives inside of you. "whatever it is, it won't let me, hold my peace. "
