WE the people of thy host,
Standing here before thee,
For thy power, O Holy Ghost,
We, as one, implore thee!

Refrain:
Send the power send the power,
Send it, we imp lore thee.
Fill us with the Holy Ghost,
As we bow before thee.

2 God of ages, God of grace,
Search these hearts before thee;
With thy power come fill this place,
We, as one, implore thee.

3 Let not self hold any part,
All we lay before thee;
Be thou conqueror of each heart,
We, as one, implore thee.

4 Thine for time, and thine for aye,
Battling, conquering for thee,
Till, when ended life’s short day,
We in Heaven adore thee.
