There appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.@Acts 2:3-4

Give us, Lord, Thy Holy Spirit,
Let us glorify Thy name;
Light within our hearts, we pray Thee,
Now, the Pentecostal flame.

Refrain

Come, Thou blessèd Holy Spirit,
Send Thy showers of blessing down;
Let the fullness of Thy presence
All this hour with glory crown.

Loose our tongues, that we may praise Thee,
That we may to others show
All the sweetness of the blessing
Thou art waiting to bestow.

Refrain

Souls are seeking Thy salvation,
We would lead them, Lord, to Thee;
Give to us the Spirit’s power,
Let us each Thy witness be.
