Representative Text

1 THE Holy Ghost to me is given,
An earnest of my home in heaven;
Since He has taken full control,
I’ve Pentecost in my soul.

I’ve Pentecost in my soul, à
I’ve Pentecost in my soul; …
The Spirit has come for ever to abide;
I’ve Pentecost in my soul.

2 He deigns to dwell my heart within,
And quells the power of pardoned sin;
Though o’er my head dark clouds may roll,
I’ve Pentecost in my soul.

3 I shout aloud with sacred joy,
His praises shall my powers employ;
His name my tongue extol,
For Pentecost in my soul.

4 And when I reach yon world of bliss,
A land more glorious far than this,
I’ll sing while countless ages roll,
I’ve Pentecost in my soul.

5 Then seek this gift without delay,
Receive the royal Guest to-day;
Yield all to His benign control,
Let Pentecost fill your soul.
