1 In the upper room at Jerusalem,
Waiting for the pow’r,
The disciples pray’d, till there came to them
God’s promise’d pow’r.

Refrain:
Lord, give me pow’r,
Pow’r, pow’r,
Lord, give me pow’r,
The pow’r of the Holy Ghost,
O come Thyself, blessed Holy Ghost,
Descend today as at Pentecost,
I pray for pow’r,
Lord, give me pow’r.

2 Lord, at Thy command I am waiting here,
Praying for the pow’r,
Let the cloven tongues in my soul appear,
Fill me with pow’r. [Refrain]

3 Give me power now over self and sin,
Sanctifying pow’r,
That this temple, Lord, may be pure within,
O give me pow’r. [Refrain]

4 Let me tarry here, till my soul receives
Pentecostal pow’r,
Thou hast promis’d, Lord, and my heart believes,
O give me pow’r. [Refrain]
