1 Rejoice, rejoice ye FallenRace,
The Day of Pentecost is come!
Expect the Sure-descending Grace,
Open your Hearts to make him Room.
2 Our Jesus is gone up on high,
For us the Blessing to receive;
It now comes streaming from the Sky,
The Spirit comes, and Sinners live.
3 To every One whom GOD shall call
The Promise is securely made'
To you far off; He calls you All;
Believer the Word which CHRIST hath said.
4 "The Holy Ghost, if I depart,
The comforter shall surly come,
Shall make the Contrite Sinner's Heart
His lov'd, his Everlasting Home."
5 LORD, we believe to Us and Ours
The Apostolick Promise given;
We wait to taste the Heavenly Powers,
The Holy Ghost sent down from Heaven.
6 Ah! leave us not to mourn below,
Or long for Thy Return to pine;
Now, LORD, the Comforter bestow,
And fix in Us the Guest Divine.
7 Assembled here with one Accord,
Calmly, we wait the Promis'd Grace,
The Purchase of our Dying LORD–
Come, Holy Ghost, and fill the Place!
8 If every one that asks, may find,
If still Thou art to Sinners given,
Come as a mighty rushing Wind,
To shake our Earth come down from Heaven.
9 Behold to Thee our Souls aspire,
And languish Thy descent to meet;
Kindle in Each Thy Living Fire,
And fix in every Heart Thy Seat.
10 Wisdom and Strength to Thee belongs;
Sweetly within our Bosoms move,
Now let us speak with Other Tongues
The New, Strang Langauge of Thy Love.
11 Spirit of Faith, within us live,
And strike the Crowd with fixt Amaze,
Open our Mouths, and Utterance give
To publish our Redeemer's Praise:
12 To testify the Grace of GOD
To-day as yesterday the fame,
And spread thro' all the Earth abroad
The wonders wrought by JESU's Name.
