"And the Spirit of God moved upon
the face of the waters" - Gen. 1:1

1.  WHEN God of old came down 

     from heav'n

     In pow'r and wrath He came 

     Before His feet the clouds were riven

     Half darkness and half flame.

2.  But when He came the second time
     He came in pow’r and love

     Softer than gale at morning prime

     Hovered His holy Dove.

3.  The fires that rush‘d on Sinai down 

     ln sudden torrents dread

     Now gently light, a glorious crown 

     On every sainted head.

4.  And as on Israel's awe-struck ear

     The voice exceeding loud

     The trump that angels quake to hear

     Thrill’d from the deep, dark cloud.

5.  So, when the spirit of our God

     Came down His flock to find

     A voice from heav’n was heard abroad

     A rushing mighty wind.

6.  It fills the Church of God, it fills

     The sinful world around

     Only in stubborn hearts and wills

     No place for it is found.

7.  Come, Lord, come, Wisdom, Love and pow'r'

     Open our ears to hear

     Let’s not miss the accepted hour

     Save, Love by love or fear.  Amen
