Authorized By Jesus Christ

The words of Christ,
which he spake unto his disciples,
the twelve whom he had chosen,
as he laid his hands upon them—

And he called them by name, saying:
Ye shall call on the Father
in my name, in mighty prayer;
and after ye have done this ye shall
have power that to him upon whom
ye shall lay your hands,
ye shall give the Holy Ghost;
and in my name shall ye give it,
for thus do mine apostles.

Now Christ spake these words unto them,
and on as many as they laid their hands,
fell the Holy Ghost.
