Representative Text

1 We come, dear Lord, in faith to thee,
Our hearts of one accord;
We seek another Pentecost,
Believing in thy word.

Refrain:
The old time pow’r is here this hour,
Promised at the Pentecost;
The old time pow’r is here this hour,
“Receive ye the Holy Ghost.”

2 We would be fitted, Lord to do
Thy service day by day;
To be a messenger of thine
To souls in sin astray. [Refrain]

3 O send the Holy Ghost divine
To cleanse our hearts from sin;
And give us pow’r, that we may go
The lost of earth to win. [Refrain]

4 Our Savior in the upper room
Breathed on his chosen few,
Saying, “Receive the Holy Ghost,
And pow’r will come to you.” [Refrain]
