1. Come, Lord, and let Thy power
On each and all descend,
While gathered in Thy holy name,
Before Thy throne we bend.

Refresh our waiting souls,
Our feeble faith inspire,
And from Thine altar touch our hearts
With coals of sacred fire.

2. Come, Lord, and let Thy power
Each thought of self remove;
And may we feel as ne’er before
Thy pure and perfect love. [Refrain]

3. Our waiting, longing eyes,
Are looking up to Thee,
O may we, in Thy smiling face,
Our Father’s glory see. [Refrain]

4. Come, Lord, Thy power alone
The work of grace can do;
Now let it consecrate to Thee
Our hearts and lives anew. [Refrain]

5. Be ours, with fervent zeal,
Thy bloodstained cross to bear;
Till at Thy feet we lay it down,
A crown of life to wear. [Refrain]
