Speaking of Pentecost, I would like to present my Pentecost Hymn once again for your consideration. Last year 323 churches used my hymn for their Pentecost service. Would you believe it? 323! Would you believe 64? Would you believe that somebody played it for coffee hour on the kazoo?
Actually, I have no idea how many people used it, but if you want to you have my permission to use it in your worship service and to share it with anyone else who think might want to use it in theirs. If you do CCLI or LicenSing please report it, but no longer require that you have any kind of license. Just use it and share it.
On the other hand if you are going to use the optional verse, you might want to be sure your insurance is payed up.
Here is the song.
The tune is Jesus Christ is Risen Today, or any other 7777 tune that you may chose. JCIRT is a great tune, and after all, it hasn't been used for 50 days.
ON THIS DAY OF WIND AND FLAME
Tune of Jesus Christ is Risen Today!
(Or any 7777 tune)
On this day of wind and flame, Alleluia!
Lord, we magnify your name. Alleluia!
Fill us with your holy fire. Alleluia!
Make your will our one desire. Alleluia!
As your Church in days of old, Alleluia!
Spoke your word in witness bold, Alleluia!
Send us forth, Lord, to declare, Alleluia!
Your glad Gospel everywhere. Alleluia!
Though in heaven now you dwell, Alleluia!
Yet you live in us as well. Alleluia!
Through the Spirit, Lord you're here, Alleluia! Ever present. Ever near. Alleluia!
In the truth now lead us all, Alleluia!
As upon your name we call.Alleluia!
That we follow by your side, Alleluia!
With Your Spirit as our guide. Alleluia!
Lord we yield to you control. Alleluia!
Grip our heart and stir our soul. Alleluia!
And the flames you did ignite Alleluia!
Keep them burning, ever bright. Alleluia!
Optional verse- (Not recommended for general use)
We have learned, Lord, in your Word, Alleluia! That your Spirit's like a bird. Alleluia!
But just how does that bird tweet? Alleluia!
Like a dove or paraclete? Alleluia!
