Representative Text

1 O my heart shall not forget the golden hour,
When the Holy Spirit like a cleansing show’r,
Fell upon my heart and took complete control,
Then His glory filled and thrilled my ransomed soul.

Refrain:
When the blessed words of promise I believed,
Then the fulness of the blessing I received,
And the Holy Spirit came,
Like a burning, cleansing flame,
When the fulness of the blessing I received.

2 When without reserve I consecrated all,
When I waited for the pow’r from heav’n to fall,
Just the moment that the promise I believed,
Then the fulness of the blessing I received. [Refrain]

3 As I walk and talk with Jesus ev’ry day,
He is keeping and sustaining all the way;
Fully yielded to His blessed will divine,
O the fulness of the blessing still is mine! [Refrain]
