As Thou didst say--the Spirit camePublished in 1 hymnal
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.
