With torch-like tongues, His Spirit fell on saints.
In foreign speech they prophesied God’s Word,
Which drew a crowd and various complaints,
Till Peter spoke, explaining what they heard.
“This is that Day God promised long ago,
When men and women, old and young, would speak
Inspired by God, to let all nations know
That Jesus is the Savior all should seek!”
The Spirit-Fire filled up that tiny troop
To shine the Light and share the Word abroad
And thrive, as sep’rate souls and as a group,
In holy ways, performing works of God.
With double-flame, the Dove applied the Cross,
Infusing Love and purging lives from dross.
