Fill Me Now

Representative Text

1 Hover o’er me, Holy Spirit,
Bathe my trembling heart and brow;
Fill me with Thy hallowed presence,
Come, O come and fill me now.

Refrain:
Fill me now, fill me now,
Jesus, come and fill me now;
Fill me with Thy hallowed presence,
Come, O come and fill me now.

2 Thou canst fill me, gracious Spirit,
Though I cannot tell Thee how;
But I need Thee, greatly need Thee,
Come, O come and fill me now. (Refrain)

3 I am weakness, full of weakness,
At Thy sacred feet I bow;
Blest, divine, eternal Spirit,
Fill with power, and fill me now. (Refrain)

4 Cleanse and comfort, bless and save me,
Bathe, O bathe my heart and brow;
Thou are comforting and saving,
Thou art sweetly filling now. (Refrain)
