Acts 2:21
"And it shall come to pass, that whosoever
shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."

          The Holy Spirit came at Pentecost,
          He came to mighty fullness then;
          His witness thru believers won the lost,
          And multitudes were born again.
          The early Christians scattered o'er the world,
          They preached the Gospel fearlessly;
          Tho' some were martyred and to lions hurled,
          They marched along in victory!

            Chorus
            Come, Holy Spirit,
            Dark is the hour,
            We need your filling,
            Your love and your mighty pow'r
            Move now among us,
            Stir us, we pray.
            Come, Holy Spirit,
            Revive the church today!

          Then in an age when darkness gripped the earth,
          "The just shall live by faith" was learned;
          The Holy Spirit gave the Church new birth
          As reformation fireds burned.
          In later years the great revivals came,
          When saints would seek the Lord and pray;
          O, once again we need that holy flame
          To meet the challenge of today!

            Chorus
            Come, Holy Spirit,
            Dark is the hour,
            We need your filling,
            Your love and your mighty pow'r
            Move now among us,
            Stir us, we pray.
            Come, Holy Spirit,
            Revive the church today!
