Pour Thy Spirit, Lord, On Me

Representative Text

1 Father, at Thy feet I'm falling,
Break the chains that now are galling,
Answer while to Thee I'm calling;
Pour Thy Spirit, Lord, on me.

Pour Thy Spirit, Lord, upon me,
Make, O make me what I should be;
Keep me pure within, free from inbred sin,
Pour Thy Spirit, Lord, on me.

2 Now while Christ is interceding,
While with Thee I'm humbly pleading,
Give me Lord, what I am needing;
Pour Thy Spirit, Lord, on me. [Refrain]

3 Lord, I will not turn or leave Thee,
Living that I may not grieve Thee,
Now, just now will I receive Thee;
Pour Thy Spirit, Lord, on me. [Refrain]
