The Promise by Chestlyn Draghoender

We’ve been waiting patiently
for the gift,
until the day of Pentecost.
We’ve been waiting patiently
for the promise
from the Father.
The one Jesus spoke about,
soon after his resurrection.
But you,
You think that we’re crazy.
You think this is a game.
You say that we have had
too much wine.
Well, you’re wrong.
The Lord’s blessing is upon us,
And we have scriptures to prove it
And when you see us
speaking in foreign tongues,
you ask:
“What does this mean?”
you’re now about to witness
the power of the Holy Spirit.
You should call us Christians,
whether you like it or not.

Acts 2v13: “The others, however,
made fun of them and said: “They
are full of wine.”
– The Bible: New International
