Hymn/Song Information

Lord we believe to us and ours The apostolic




Lord, we believe to us and ours
The apostolic promise given;
We wait the Pentecostal powers,
The Holy Ghost sent down from heaven.


To every one whom God shall call
The promise is securely made;
To you far off—he calls you all;
Believe the word which Christ hath said:


‘The Holy Ghost if I depart,
The Comforter, shall surely come,
Shall make the contrite sinner’s heart
His loved, his everlasting home.’


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.


Assembled here with one accord,
Calmly we wait the promised grace,
The purchase of our dying Lord:
Come, Holy Ghost, and fill the place.


If every one that asks may find,
If still thou dost on sinners fall,
Come as a mighty rushing wind;
Great grace be now upon us all.


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.
