Hymn/Song Information

A mighty sound from heaven




A mighty sound from heaven
at Pentecost there came,
and filled the place of meeting
with rushing wind and flame:
what Christ had promised
now occurred
as each Apostle spoke the word
beneath the Spirit's thunder,
and to the ears of all who heard
proclaimed salvation's wonder.


In Salem's street was gathered
a crowd from manya land,
and all in their own tongues
did the Gospel understand:
for by the triumph of the Son
the curse of Babel was undone
when God did send the Spirit;
so to the blessed Three in One
be honor praise and merit.


Then come, all Christian people,
keep festival today,
for God the Holy Spirit
dwells with the Church alway:
and grieve him not,
O Christian soul,
his grace within
shall make you whole
in body, mind, and spirit,
until you reach the promised goal,
a kingdom to inherit.
