1 Give us, Lord, thy Holy Spirit,
Let us glorify thy name;
Light within our hearts, we pray thee,
Now, the pentecostal flame.

Come into our midst, dear Saviour,
Send thy show'rs of blessing down;
Let the fullness of thy mercy
All this hour with glory crown.

2 Loose our tongues, that we may praise thee,
That we may to others show
All the sweetness of the blessing
Thou art waiting to bestow. [Chorus]

3 Souls are seeking thy salvation,
We would lead them, Lord, to thee;
Give to us the Spirit's power,
Let us each thy witness be. [Chorus]
