Representative Text

1 Gracious heav’nly Father,
Hear Thy people’s cry,
See us how we languish,
Help us ere we die.
Send us by Thy Spirit,
Power from on high.

Chorus:
Power, power, power from on high,
Send us by Thy Spirit
Power from on high.

2 Send divine conviction,
Bring salvation nigh;
Crucify and quicken,
Save and sanctify.
Blessed Spirit bring us
Power from on high. [Chorus]

3 As the heav’nly sunshine
bringing summer nigh,
As the show’rs that water
Deserts parched and dry,
Quick’ning Spirit bring us
Power from on high. [Chorus]

4 Father at Thy footstool,
Low Thy people lie,
Waiting for Thy promise;
Hear our helpless cry;
Send us, Father send us
Power from on high. [Chorus]
