Hymns From The East by John Brownlie

Even as Thou saidst, the Spirit came,


tr., John Brownlie

Ergo, hos palai tois mathetais epengeilo.


Even as Thou saidst, the Spirit came,

In fiery tongues of living flame;

And men were moved to spread abroad,

The Wisdom of th' Incarnate God.


And nations heard the truth, and gave

Their souls to Him who came to save;

And toiling in their sins, arose

The power of Satan to oppose.


Even as Thou saidst; the Spirit's power

Came at the Pentecostal hour,

And drooping souls with zeal were fired,

And felt the life that power inspired.


Even as Thou saidst, the Spirit's voice

Spake to dull hearts, and bade rejoice;

And men that dwelt in sorrow's night,

Felt hope awake as morning light.


Even as Thou saidst; His power can still

Our empty lives to fulness fill;

Can charge with hope, with zeal inspire,

And kindle life, and light, and fire.


Even as Thou saidst! -- O Spirit, come,

Make with Thy people here Thy home;

In all their need Thy gifts supply,

And Christ our Lord still glorify.
