CQOD: 06/11/07 -- Cotterill: Let songs of praise fill the sky

Christian Quotation of the Day

June 11, 2007
Feast of Barnabas the Apostle
    When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
    -- Acts 2:1-4 (NIV)

    Let songs of praises fill the sky! Christ, our ascended Lord, Sends down his Spirit from on high, According to his word. The Spirit by his heavenly breath, New life creates within: He quickens sinners from the death Of trespasses and sin. The things of Christ the Spirit takes, And shows them unto men; The fallen soul his temple makes, God’s image stamps again Come, Holy Spirit, from above, With thy celestial fire: Come, and with flames of zeal and love Our hearts and tongues inspire.
    ... Thomas Cotterill (1779-1823)

Quiet time reflection:
    Fill my heart, Spirit of God.
