Let Songs of Praises Fill the Sky!

Let songs of praises fill the sky!
Christ, our ascended Lord,
Sends down His Spirit from on high,
According to His Word.
All hail the day of Pentecost,
The coming of the Holy Ghost!

The Spirit, by His heavenly breath,
New life creates within;
He quickens sinners from the death
Of trespasses and sin:
All hail the day of Pentecost,
The coming of the Holy Ghost!

The things of Christ the Spirit takes,
And shows them unto men;
The fallen soul his temple makes;
God’s image stamps again:
All hail the day of Pentecost,
The coming of the Holy Ghost!

Come, Holy Spirit, from above,
With Thy celestial fire;
Come, and with flames of zeal and love
Our hearts and tongues inspire:
Be this our day of Pentecost,
The coming of the Holy Ghost!

Thomas Cotterill

Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book, Methodist Episcopal Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #170.

Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.
