Come Holy Spirit (Peterson)
Key(s): C/Db
From http://www.bensonsound.com/lyrics/0119.htm
Verse 1
The Holy Spirit came at Pentecost
He came in mighty fullness then
His witness thru believers won the lost
And multitudes were born again
The early Christians scattered o'er the world
They preached the gospel fearlessly
Tho' some were martyred and to lions hurled
They marched along in victory
Chorus
Come Holy Spirit dark is the hour
We need Your filling
Your love and Your mighty power
Move now among us stir us we pray
Come Holy Spirit revive the church today
Verse 2
Then in an age when darkness gripped the earth
The just shall live by faith was learned
The Holy Spirit gave the church new birth
As reformation fires burned
In later years the great revivals came
When saints would seek the Lord and pray
O once again we need that holy flame
To meet the challenge of today
Chorus
Come Holy Spirit dark is the hour
We need Your filling
Your love and Your mighty power
Move now among us stir us we pray
Come Holy Spirit revive the church today

Repeat Chorus
Revive the church today
Revive the church today

Come Holy Spirit I need thee
Come sweet Spirit I pray
Come in Thy strength and Thy power
Come in Thine own special way

Our choir at our Baptist church loves this "choral" music. We sing this song when our regular choral director is "out of town". It's a simple rhythmic tune for our substitute choral director. :) It was copyright in 1971, which was a year my brother was born. That is another good reason this music is excellent!!

This song was, I think, published in "Soul Stirring Songs and Hymns", IINM. You're right, it's powerful and oh, do we need to have the Holy Spirit revive US today, too.
