1 Give us, Lord, Thy Holy Spirit,
Let us glorify Thy name;
Light within our hearts, we pray Thee,
Now, the Pentecostal flame.

Come, Thou blessèd Holy Spirit,
Send Thy showers of blessing down;
Let the fullness of Thy presence
All this hour with glory crown.

2 Loose our tongues, that we may praise Thee,
That we may to others show
All the sweetness of the blessing
Thou art waiting to bestow. [Refrain]

3 Souls are seeking Thy salvation,
We would lead them, Lord, to Thee;
Give to us the Spirit’s power,
Let us each Thy witness be. [Refrain]
