158. Pentecostal Power

1 Lord, as of old at Pentecost
Thou didst Thy pow'r display,
With cleansing, purifying flame,
Descend on us today.
Lord, send the old-time pow'r, the Pentecostal powe'r!
Thy flood-gates of blessing on us throw open wide!
Lord, send the old-time pow'r, the Pentecostal pow'r,
That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified!

2 For mighty works for Thee, prepare
And strengthen every heart.
Come, take possession of Thine own,
And nevermore depart.
Lord, send the old-time pow'r, the Pentecostal powe'r!
Thy flood-gates of blessing on us throw open wide!
Lord, send the old-time pow'r, the Pentecostal pow'r,
That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified!

3 All self consume, all sin destroy!
With earnest zeal endue
Each waiting heart to work for Thee.
O Lord, our faith renew!
Lord, send the old-time pow'r, the Pentecostal powe'r!
Thy flood-gates of blessing on us throw open wide!
Lord, send the old-time pow'r, the Pentecostal pow'r,
That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified!

4 Speak, Lord! before Thy throne we wait;
Thy promise we believe,
And will not let Thee go until
The blessing we receive.
Lord, send the old-time pow'r, the Pentecostal powe'r!
Thy flood-gates of blessing on us throw open wide!
Lord, send the old-time pow'r, the Pentecostal pow'r,
That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified!
