In our own native languages – v2

The other believers
those gathered round
hearing the disciples speak
wondering at the sound

The first disciples
those gathered together
speaking in words we could comprehend
speaking in our own languages

The Message of Christ
by the Spirit’s power
cutting through the Babel
to reach each believer

Changing us in that instant
the birthing of the church
by the power of the Word
spoken in our own language
