Representative Text

1 ‘Tis the very same power,
The very same power;
‘Tis the pow’r, the power;
‘Tis the pow’r that Jesus promised should come down.

2 While with one accord assembled,
All in an upper room,
Came the power, the power;
‘Tis the pow’r that Jesus promised should come down.

3 With cloven tongues of fire,
And a rushing mighty wind,
Came the power, the power;
‘Tis the pow’r that Jesus promised should come down.

4 ‘Twas while they all were praying,
And believing it would come,
Came the power, the power;
‘Tis the pow’r that Jesus promised should come down.

5 Some thought they were fanatic,
Or were drunken with new wine;
‘Twas the power, the power;
‘Tis the pow’r that Jesus promised should come down.

6 Three thousand were converted,
And were added to the church,
By the power, the power;
‘Tis the pow’r that Jesus promised should come down.

7 ‘The martyrs had this power,
As they triumphed in the flames;
‘Twas the power, the power;
‘Tis the pow’r that Jesus promised should come down.

8 Our fathers had this power,
And we may have it too;
‘Tis the power, the power;
‘Tis the pow’r that Jesus promised should come down.

9 ‘Tis the very same power,
For I feel it in my soul;
‘Tis the power, the power;
‘Tis the pow’r that Jesus promised should come down.
