1 In the upper room at Jerusalem,
Waiting for the pow’r,
The disciples pray’d, till there came to them
God’s promise’d pow’r.

Lord, give me pow’r,
Pow’r, pow’r,
Lord, give me pow’r,
The pow’r of the Holy Ghost,
O come Thyself, blessed Holy Ghost,
Descend today as at Pentecost,
I pray for pow’r,
Lord, give me pow’r.

2 Lord, at Thy command I am waiting here,
Praying for the pow’r,
Let the cloven tongues in my soul appear,
Fill me with pow’r. [Refrain]

3 Give me power now over self and sin,
Sanctifying pow’r,
That this temple, Lord, may be pure within,
O give me pow’r. [Refrain]

4 Let me tarry here, till my soul receives
Pentecostal pow’r,
Thou hast promis’d, Lord, and my heart believes,
O give me pow’r. [Refrain]
