Scripture Verse

There came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. Acts 2:2–3

Charles H. Gabriel (1856–1932)


Come, Spi­rit, come in mighty power,
As on the blessèd day of old
When fell the Pentecostal shower
That gathered thousands to the fold.


Nothing but the power of the Holy Ghost
Can sanctify and keep through a Sav­ior’s love,
And light within our souls the flame
That burns on the altar of Heav’n above.

O for a mighty rushing wind
To fill this consecrated place,
That sinners lost might seek and find
The gate of hope, the door of grace.


O for a power that heals the heart,
That takes away the dross of sin,
That we may, like the world, depart,
And let the King of Glory in.


Dear Sav­ior, from Thy throne on high
Now grant the power for which we call,
Till shouts of rapture fill the sky,
And Thou, O Lord, art all in all.
