1. Come, Holy Ghost, and touch my tongue
As with a living flame;
I want the sanctifying grace
My Savior bids me claim.

Refrain
Waiting, I am waiting
For the promise of the Pentecostal shower;
Waiting, I am waiting
For the promise of Thy wondrous, mighty power.

2. Come, Holy Ghost, with sacred fire
Baptize this heart of mine;
Break every earthly idol down,
And all its dross refine. [Refrain]

3. I want a self renouncing will,
That owns His sweet control,
And through my life I want His love
A ceaseless flood to roll. [Refrain]

4. Come, Holy Ghost, the blood apply
As Thou hast ne’er before,
That I may shout my Savior’s praise
Henceforth and evermore. [Refrain]
