Winds of Pentecost



We were there in one accord
In that humble prayer room,
In obedience to our Lord.
He had promised to consume
All our fears and failures
With the Spirit’s power;
As we prayed for Father’s Promise
In that hour;
On the Day of Pentecost.

Jesus led us to believe
It was best that he should go.
Only then could we receive
What he promised to bestow
In a shower of glory,
Fitting us for preaching;
With anointing to conform us
To his teaching,
On the Day of Pentecost.

How the Glory hit that room
With the fire and sound of breeze!
As the One who cleared the tomb
Met us there on bended knees,
Speaking languages we knew not,
Giving proof.
We had found the One to lead us
In all truth,
On the Day of Pentecost.

Fifty days after “First-Fruits”
In that ancient Feast of Weeks,
We were made the first recruits,
By the One whom each soul seeks.
Yes the Holy Spirit gave
His unction to us,
That the Church of Christ might start her
Campaign through us,
On the Day of Pentecost.

If we only looked to him,
Our great Spirit, Comfort, Friend,
He would keep us true and trim,
And sustain us to the end;
As the Earnest of our hope
Of final glory,
And the author of a growing
Gospel story,
From the Day of Pentecost.

We went forth in Jesus’ stead
To engage in Holy War
As an army Spirit-led,
In a way not known before;
With his Word to win a wounded
World to Jesus,
In the power which the Holy
Ghost releases,
As on the Day of Pentecost.

LUKE 24: 49
And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

ACTS 4: 33
And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.
