During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

As Thou didst say--the Spirit came

As Thou didst say--the Spirit came

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

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.

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.
