1 All around this very hour,
Falls there streams of heav’nly power;
Falling now so full and free,
Praise the Lord, it’s filling me.

Hallelujah! feel the power,
Falling like a mighty shower;
Coming now so full and free,
Praise the Lord, it’s filling me.

2 Send us showers of heav’nly grace,
Let Thy presence fill this place;
Speak the word, and it shall be,
That Thy showers fall on me. [Refrain]

3 Thou alone this power canst give,
Without which I dare not live;
Give me power to work for Thee,
Let the stream reach even me. [Refrain]

Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill.
