1 Have you learned the precious secret of the Holy Spirit's pow'r?
Do you know that joy and gladness is your portion ev'ry hour?
Do you know that you may always have the Spirit dwell within?
And that Jesus Christ within you sanctifies and keeps from sin?

Refrain:
Do you know the precious secret of the Holy Spirit's pow'r?
Do you know that joy and gladness is your portion ev'ry hour?
Oh, be filled, be filled, my brother, with the Holy Spirit's pow'r!
Only ask, and God will send Him like an overflowing show'r.

2 Oh, my brother, Jesus never meant for you and me to stay
In the flesh, and feebly struggle His commandments to obey!
In the flesh we cannot please Him nor the works of heaven do;
Jesus Christ has something better than this struggling life for you. [Refrain]

3 He has sent the Holy Spirit to fulfill in us the right;
We surrender and receive Him, then He strengthens us with might;
And the deeds of grace we're doing and the life we thenceforth live
Are no longer ours, but Jesus thro' our faith His life doth give. [Refrain]

4 Do you find it hard, my brother, to obey the law of love?
Is your heart so cold t'ward Jesus that your faith you cannot prove?
Oh, my brother, claim the Spirit, for the promise is to you,
And the Spirit needs you, brother, for the laborers are few! [Refrain]
