To Me The Holy Ghost Is Given


The Holy Ghost to me is giv’n,
An earnest of the joys of heav’n;
Since He has taken full control,
I’ve Pentecost in my soul.

Refrain:
I’ve Pentecost in my soul,
I’ve Pentecost in my soul;
The Spirit has come, for aye to abide;
I’ve Pentecost in my soul.

He deigns to dwell my heart within
And quells the pow’r of pardoned sin;
Tho o’er my head dark clouds may roll,
I’ve Pentecost in my soul. [Refrain]

O hallow’d rest! O peace sublime!
He reigns within me all the time;
He purifies and makes me whole,
I’ve Pentecost in my soul. [Refrain]

I shout aloud with sacred joy,
His praises shall my pow’rs employ,
His blessed name my tongue extol,
For Pentecost in my soul. [Refrain]

And when I reach yon world of bliss,
A land more glorious far than this,
I’ll sing while countless ages roll,
I’ve Pentecost in my soul. [Refrain]

Then seek this Gift without delay,
Receive the royal Guest today;
Yield all to His benign control,
Let Pentecost fill your soul!
O yes, [Refrain]
