John Brownlie

8,8,8,8

'Εργω, ως παλαι μαθηταις επηγγειλω

As Thou didst say--the Spirit came

In fiery tongues of living flame;

And men were moved to spread abroad

The wisdom of th' Incarnate God.

And nations heard the truth, and gave

Their souls to Him who came to save;

And toiling in their sins, arose

The power of Satan to oppose.

As Thou didst say--the Spirit's power

Came at the Pentecostal hour;

And drooping souls with zeal were fired,

And felt the life that power inspired.

109

As Thou didst say--the Spirit's voice

Spake to dull hearts, and bade rejoice;

And men that dwelt in sorrow's night,

Felt hope awake as morning light.

As Thou didst say--His power can still

Our empty lives to fulness fill;

Can charge with hope, with zeal inspire,

And kindle life, and light, and fire.

As Thou didst say--O Spirit, come,

Make with Thy people here Thy home;

In all their need Thy gifts supply,

And Christ our Lord still glorify.
