Another Pentecost

Full Text

1 We today may have the power which they had at Pentecost,
Just the very same pow’r, the very same pow’r;
This our heritage in Jesus e’en the blessed Holy Ghost,
Just the very same, the very same pow’r.

Refrain:
The very same pow’r, the very same pow’r,
Praise, O praise his holy name forever!
Just the very same pow’r Jesus promised should come down,
Just the very same, the very same pow’r.

2 It was while they all were praying, that the Spirit was outpoured,
We may have the same pow’r, the very same pow’r;
In like manner we must wait with one desire and one accord,
We may have the same, the very same pow’r. [Refrain]

3 As the Spirit gave them utt’rance they began to testify,
We may have the same pow’r, the very same pow’r;
And three thousand were converted and their Lord did glority,
We may have the same, the very same pow’r. [Refrain]

4 As we tarry here, O Father, cleanse and fill each waiting heart,
With the very same pow’r, the very same pow’r;
Liberty and strength for service to thy children all impart,
Just the very same, the very same pow’r. [Refrain]

5 Now the glorious scene repeating in another Pentecost,
Send the very same pow’r, the very same pow’r;
Unto thee shall be the glory Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
For the very same, the very same pow’r. [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 >
