Have you ever read an exciting and gripping novel that you just can’t put down. The book
of Acts is one of these. It’s a fast-moving, action-packed story which starts with an
incredible promise of Jesus, and launches into the tense and stirring adventures of the
disciples as they, following Jesus’ command and promise, move through the middle
Eastern world spreading the good news. Despite dangers and threats against their
lives they forge on, knowing that the power of God is with them.
This song is a joyful round which captures Jesus’ promise, not just to His disciples
2000 years ago, but to us today.
When the Spirit comes,
when the Spirit comes,
you will be my witnesses.
You will have the Power of God
and you’ll witness to the rest of the World
