Filled with the Spirit’s Power

Pentecos4This is an absolutely gorgeous hymn. One of those things one wishes one could have written oneself. It’s beautiful. If you congregation doesn’t know it, badger your music director and pastor to program it. It deserves to become a classic. I’ve presented it here, exactly as written, with just the sounds of a string orchestra. It speaks for itself. It’s the third in a series of hymns presented as part of our Pentecost celebration.

The hymn tune name is SHELDONIAN, by Cyril V. Taylor, and the words and music are with Hope Publishing Company. It’s #266 in the New Century Hymnal. You can read about it at
