Twas The Blessed Day Of Pentecost

‘Twas the blessed day of Pentecost
When the Spirit, sent from heav’n,
On the head of each disciple fell,
From the Father’s presence giv’n.

When the tongues of fire, the tongues of fire,
Fell one ach disciple’s head,
They were filled with pow’r to preach that hour,
“Christ is risen from the dead.”

Then they spake with joy the living word,
They were nevermore dismayed;
And the hearts of all were deeply stirred
By the wonders God displayed. [Chorus]

Send Thy Spirit down on us, dear Lord,
While we wait before Thy throne;
Give Thy servants grace to speak Thy word,
Let them fear but Thee alone. [Chorus]
