Our Pentecost — Joyce Dent, UK

Pentecost came once –

long long, so long ago!

What can it mean to us

but to inspire perhaps?

And yet could it be so

that we might know

the fire upon our heads

and in our souls?

Our lives might yet be changed

beyond out wildest dreams –

or fears?

For we might have to go

out, near or far, to show

in caring deeds

or daring words

that Jesus still is here –

and calls to us

to walk the walk

and talk the talk

of long ago –

for people

of this present

Pentecost!
