Representative Text

1. To me the Holy Ghost is giv’n,
An earnest of the joys of Heav’n;
Since He has taken full control,
I’ve Pentecost in my soul.

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

2. The Spirit dwells my heart within
And breaks the pow’r of pardoned sin;
Tho’ o’er my head dark clouds may roll,
I’ve Pentecost in my soul. [Refrain]

3. O holy rest! O peace sublime!
He reigns within me all the time;
He purifies and makes me whole—
I’ve Pentecost in my soul. [Refrain]

4. Then seek this Gift without delay,
Receive the Holy Ghost today;
Yield all to His benign control,
Let Pentecost fill your soul!
O yes! [Refrain]
