Representative Text

1 I have tarried for the power of the Holy Ghost,
I’ve received Him and He saves me to the uttermost;
I surrendered at the cross, counting all for Jesus loss,
And I’m happy on my Heav’nly way.

Refrain:
On the way,
On the way,
I’m rejoicing as I pass along the way;
By the blood I’m sanctified, and the Spirit is my Guide,
As I journey on my Heav’nly way.

2 I have tarried for the power of the life of love,
For the overcoming faith that’s given from above;
God has given it to me, and from sin my heart is free,
As I journey on my Heav’nly way. [Refrain]

3 I have tarried for the power as the Lord did say,
And this power doth renew me ev’ry passing day,
I am out and out for Him, who thro’ death did me redeem,
And I’m happy on my Heav’nly way. [Refrain]
