Representative Text

1 We, Thy children, Lord, are waiting,
O Thy promise now fulfill,
Ev’ry pow’r is consecrated,
All surrendered to Thy will.

Refrain:
We are waiting for the promise,
Let refining fire descend,
Cleanse each temple, making holy
While we now before Thee bend.

2 He is coming, He is coming,
This abiding, heav’nly guest;
To the heart entirely yielded,
He will give the promised rest. [Refrain]

3 He is coming, He is coming,
Blessed, promised Holy Ghost;
And my soul is filled with rapture,
Saved unto the uttermost. [Refrain]

4 Hallelujah, now He fills me,
Glory, glory to His name!
For the cleansing, making holy,
With the Pentecostal flame. [Refrain]

5 Praise Him, praise Him, He’s my Saviour,
Full salvation fills my soul!
Like a sea of love so boundless,
Waves of glory o’er me roll. [Refrain]
