1 Rejoice! the year upon its way
has brought again this blessèd day
when on the chosen of the Lord
the Holy Spirit was outpoured.
2 That morning a rushing noise
came like the tempest's sudden voice
and mingled with th'apostles' pryer
proclaimed aloud that God was there.
3 On each the fire descending stood
in quiv'ring tongues’ similitude;
from out the Father's light it came
that beautiful and holy flame.
4 To all in ev'ry tongue they spoke;
amazement in the crowd awoke,
who mocked, as overcome with wine,
those who were filled with power divine.
5 As then, O Lord, thou didst fulfill
each holy heart to do thy will,
so now do thou our sins forgive,
and make the world in peace to live.
6 To God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Spirit, praise be done;
may Christ the Lord upon us pour
the Spirit’s gift forevermore.
