Lord, we seek from thee a blessing

Full Text

1 Lord, we seek from thee a blessing, so abundant, rich and free,
As before thy throne of mercy we would bow;
Let us know this very hour
How unbounded is thy pow’r,
Send thy promised blessing now!

Refrain:
Send thy promised blessing now!
Send thy promised blessing now!
Let us know this very hour
How unbounded is thy pow’r,
Send thy promised blessing now!

2 We would claim the blest assurance that is written in thy word,
As each heart again renews to thee its vow;
Send the Pentecostal flame,
For thy pow’r is still the same,
Send thy promised blessing now! [Refrain]

3 Open now the heav’nly windows, that thy blessings may come down
To each heart that waits within thy courts below;
Let us know this very hour
Hour unbounded is thy pow’r,
Send thy promised blessing now! [Refrain]
