When God the Spirit came
Upon his church outpoured
In sound of wind and sign of flame,
They spread his truth abroad
And, filled with the Spirit,
Proclaimed that Christ is Lord.

 

What courage, pow'r, and grace
That youthful church displayed!
To those of ev'ry tribe and race
They witnessed unafraid.
And, filled with the Spirit,
They broke their bread and prayed.

 

They saw God's Word prevail,
His kingdom still increase,
No part of all his purpose fail,
No promised blessing cease
And, filled with the Spirit,
Knew love and joy and peace.
And, filled with the Spirit,
Knew love and joy and peace.

 

Their theme was Christ alone,
The Lord who lived and died,
Who rose to his eternal throne
At God the Father's side,
And, filled with the Spirit,
The church was multiplied.

 

So to this present hour
Our task is still the same:
In Pentecostal love and pow'r
His gospel to proclaim
And, filled with the Spirit,
Rejoice in Jesus' name.
And, filled with the Spirit,
Rejoice in Jesus' name.
And, filled with the Spirit,
Rejoice in Jesus' name.
Rejoice in Jesus' name.
Rejoice in Jesus' name.
