Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

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!
