PENTECOST

SONG: COME, HOLY GHOST, OUR SOULS INSPIRE

Artist: Choir of Portsmouth Cathedral, David Price (Master of the Choristers)
Words/Music: Anon trans Cosin/Anon
Recording: Herald HAVPCD 205

Come, Holy Ghost, our souls inspire
and lighten with celestial fire;
thou the anointing Spirit art,
who dost thy seven-fold gifts impart.

Thy blessed unction from above
is comfort, life, and fire of love;
enable with perpetual light
the dullness of our mortal sight.

Teach us to know the Father, Son,
and thee, of both, to be but one,
that through the ages all along
this may be our endless song:

Praise to thine eternal merit,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Amen.

SONG: BE STILL, FOR THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD

Artist: Choir of Portsmouth Cathedral, David Price (Master of the Choristers, and organist)
Words/Music: David Evans
Recording: Herald HAVPCD 205

Be still, for the presence of the Lord,
the holy one, is here;
Come bow before him now
with reverence and fear:
In him no sin is found
we stand on holy ground.
Be still, for the presence of the Lord,
the holy one, is here.

Be still, for the glory of the Lord
is shining all around;
He burns with holy fire,
with splendour he is crowned:
How awesome is the sight
our radiant king of light!
Be still, for the glory of the Lord
is shining all around.

Be still, for the power of the Lord
is moving in this place;
He comes to cleanse and heal,
to minister his grace
No work too hard for him
In faith receive from him
Be still, for the power of the Lord
is moving in this place.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
fill me with life anew,

and do what thou wouldst do.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,

until with thee I will one will,
to do and to endure.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
till I am wholly thine;
until this earthly part of me
glows with the fire divine.

Breathe on me, Breath of God,
so shall I never die,
but live with you the perfect life
for all eternity.

Recording: RNZ CD 809

Praise the Lord! ye heav'ns, adore Him;
Praise Him, angels, in the height.
Sun and moon, rejoice before Him;
Praise Him, all ye stars of light.
Praise the Lord! for He hath spoken;
Worlds His mighty voice obeyed.
Law which never shall be broken
For their guidance hath He made.

Praise the Lord for He is glorious;
Never shall His promise fail.
God hath made His saints victorious;
Sin and death shall not prevail.
Praise the God of our salvation!
Hosts on high, His power proclaim,
Heav'n and earth and all creation
Laud and magnify His name.

Worship, honor, glory, blessing,
Lord, we offer unto Thee.
Young and old, Thy praise expressing,
In glad homage bend the knee.
All the saints in heav'n adore Thee;
We would bow before Thy throne.
As Thine angels serve before Thee,
So on earth Thy will be done.

SONG: O JESUS, I HAVE PROMISED

Artist: Choir of Yorkminster Park Baptist Church, Catherine Palmer (dir), Ronald Jordan (organ)
Words/Music: Bode/Elliott
Recording: Marquis 181175

O Jesus, I have promised
to serve thee to the end;
be thou forever near me,
my Master and my friend;
I shall not fear the battle
if thou art by my side,
nor wander from the pathway
if thou wilt be my guide.

O let me feel thee near me!
The world is ever near:
I see the sights that dazzle;
the tempting sounds I hear.
My foes are ever near me,
around me and within;
but, Jesus, draw thou nearer
and shield my soul from sin.

O let me hear thee speaking
in accents clear and still,
above the storms of passion,
the murmurs of self-will;
O speak to reassure me,
to hasten or control;
O speak, and make me listen,
thou guardian of my soul.

O let me see thy footmarks,
and in them plant mine own:
my hope to follow duly
is in thy strength alone:
O guide me, call me, draw me,
uphold me to the end;
and then in heav’n receive me,
my Saviour and my friend.

EV’RY TIME I FEEL THE SPIRIT

Refrain:
Ev’ry time I feel the spirit
movin’ in my heart I will pray
yes ev’ry time I feel the spirit
movin’ in my heart I will pray


Up that mountain my Lord spoke
out of His mouth came fire and smoke
looked all around me, it looked so fine
till I asked the Lord if all was mine

Jordan river is chilly and cold
it chills the body but not the soul
there ain’t but one train upon this track
it runs to heaven and then right back
