     14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. 15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

     19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. 20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.(KJV)

1. O Spirit of the living God, 
In all Thy plentitude of grace, 
Where’er the foot of man hath trod, 
Descend on our apostate race. 

2. Give tongues of fire and hearts of love 
To preach the reconciling Word; 
Give pow’r and unction from above 
Where’er the joyful sound is heard. 

3. Be darkness, at Thy coming, light; 
Confusion, order, in Thy path; 
Souls without strength inspire with might; 
Bid mercy triumph over wrath. 

4. O Spirit of the Lord, prepare 
A sinful world their God to meet; 
Breathe Thou abroad like morning air 
Till hearts of stone begin to beat. 

5. Baptize the nations; far and nigh 
The triumphs of the Cross record; 
The name of Jesus glorify 
Till every kindred call Him Lord. 

6. God from eternity hath willed 
All flesh shall His salvation see; 
So be the Father’s love fulfilled, 
The Savior’s sufferings crowned through Thee.
