1. “The Holy Spirit’s power

Ye need,” the Master said;

“So wait till comes the hour

When on you He is shed.”

So praise did all their souls employ

As tarried they with fervent joy.

2. And when ten days were passed

With one accord were they’

Heaven’s windows long closed fast,

Were opened on that day;

With rushing mighty wind and flame,

The promised Holy Spirit came.

3. Their loosened tongues were filled

With strange and wondrous words;

Heaven’s life their hearts had thrilled,

God’s goodness they declared;

“And unto all,” th’ Apostle said,

“Is the like gift, since Christ has bled.”

4. Come now, ye sons f men,

This message now receive,

The Holy Spirit’s given

To all who will believe;

Ye, too, may know His mighty power,

And speak with tongues this very hour.

5. Then charity divine,

Your yearning hearts shall fill

‘T’wards those who now repine,

Held in sin’s bondage still;

For these your zeal shall never tire

To snatch them from th’ e’erlasting fire.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
