Full Text

1 Like a “rushing mighty wind” across the sea and land
Comes the pentecostal breeze obeying God’s command,
Nothing wrong nor sinful can its mighty strength withstand,
It is sweeping o’er the world!

Refrain:
It is sweeping o’er the world,
It is sweeping o’er the world,
With a swift, potential force,
It is speeding on its course,
It is sweeping o’er the world!

2 It is fanning ever brighter faith’s poor smouldering fire,
And the people far and near to holy lives aspire,
More of love to God the Father is the heart’s desire,
It is sweeping o’er the world! [Refrain]

3 It disperses clouds of doubt and rives them far away,
And the nations walk together in the Light today,
The redeemed of all the earth march on in strong array,
It is sweeping o’er the world! [Refrain]

4 Soul reviving currents speed across the land and sea
And the nations sing as one the anthem of the free,
From the distant islands come the sounds of jubilee,
It is sweeping o’er the world! [Refrain]
