With signs of power, of wind and flame,
the promised Holy Spirit came.
Jesus had promised when he left
he would not leave them weak, bereft.
His Spirit would empower, so they
could tell of pardon, teach the Way
of reconciliation, peace
– the cross of Christ had brought release.
By miracle, upon that day
from all the world, they heard them say
in all their languages, that now
the whole wide world God’s grace could know.
