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

Hallelujah! feel the pow'r,
Falling like a mighty show'r;
Coming now so full and free,
Praise the Lord, it's filling me.

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

3 Thou alone this pow'r can'st give,
Without which I dare not live;
Give me pow'r to work for thee,
Let the stream reach even me. [Chorus]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. 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. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
