1 The pow’r that fell at Pentecost,
When in that upper room,
Upon the watching, waiting ones,
The Holy Ghost had come.
Remaineth evermore the same;
Unchanging still, O praise His name.

The pow’r, the pow’r, the Pentecostal pow’r
Is just the same today.
Is Just the same today.
The pow’r, the pow’r, the Pentecostal pow’r
Is just the same today.

2 “Ye shall have pow’r" ,said Jesus, when
Thy Holy Ghost is come;
“Your loosened tongues shall speak His praise,
Your lips no more be dumb,
The timid, shrinking ones be brave,
To reach a hand the lost to save. [Refrain]

3 The wav’ring shall steadfast become;
The weak in faith be strong,
With holy boldness going forth,
Denouncing sin and wrong;
With burning zeal each heart aflame,
A whole salvation to proclaim. [Refrain]

4 Breathe on us now the Holy Ghost,
The young and old inspire;
Let each receive his Pentecost,
Send hearts and tongues of fire;
Thou wonderful transforming pow’r,
Come now in this accepted hour. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
