Hymns Of The Apostolic Church by John Brownlie

When Jesus at the feast reclined,

tr., John Brownlie

8.8.8.8

I

When Jesus at the feast reclined,

And sad disciples sorrowed most,

He gave, to soothe their troubled mind,

The promise of the Holy Ghost.

II

|I will not leave you,| thus He spake,

|As orphans here alone to dwell;

With you My sure abode I'll make,

And all your loneliness dispel.|

III

And when amid the clouds of heaven,

Th' ascending Lord to sight was lost;

The promised Gift of Christ was given

Upon the hallowed Pentecost.

IV

He came upon a rushing wind,

The faint apostles to inspire;

And on their waiting band declined,

In form of cloven tongues of fire.

V

And as the Spirit utterance gave,

Their tongues expressed the thought inspired;

And faltering, timid hearts were brave,

And fainting souls with zeal were fired.

VI

O Spirit, Gift of Christ adored,

Our need behold, in power descend;

And, as was promised by our Lord,

Abide our Comforter, and Friend.
