1 Like fireworks in the night
the Holy Spirit came;
disciple's fears took flight
when touched by fronds of flame:
and suddenly the world was young
as hope embraced a Saviour's claim.
2 For Jesus bade them dare
to venture, as they should;
his love taught them to share
their homes, possessions, food:
the mind of Jesus gave them speech
all tribes and peoples understood.
3 Thus God our spirits lifts
fresh daring to inspire
as common folk get gifts
to change the world entire:
the tongues of flame at Pentecost
ran through the world like forest fire.
