Tarry, tarry, humbly on his word

Representative Text

1 Go, tarry at Jerusalem, this was the parting word,
Before the op’ning clouds of heaven received the risen Lord;
This faithful band obeyed the call, forsaking friends and home,
They waited day by day in prayer, till Pentecost had come.

Tarry, tarry,
Humbly on his word believe;
For Jesus will baptize with fire,
And pow’r you shall receive.

2 And then the promise was fulfilled, the Holy Spirit came,
And rested on each trusting one who asked in Jesus’ name;
The symbol sat on ev’ry head, fire burned in ev’ry heart,
The Holy Ghost had come to earth, to never more depart. [Refrain]

3 The Pentecostal power remains, and in these latter days
He fill our hearts with rapturous joy, our lips with sweetest praise;
Our bodies now the temples are, in which the Spirit dwells,
And gives his light and love divine and ev’ry fear dispels. [Refrain]

4 Oh, hallelujah, praise the Lord for what his grace has giv’n!
The promise of the Father true, the Holy Ghost from heav’n;
He purifies the heart by faith, and power doth impart
To love and live and toil for him with hand and head and heart. [Refrain]
