242. Pentecostal Power

1. Lord, as of old at Pentecost
Thou didst Thy pow'r display,
With cleansing, purifying flame,
Descend on us today.

Lord, send the old-time power, the Pentecostal power!
Thy flood-gates of blessing on us throw open wide!
Lord, send the old-time power, the Pentecostal power,
That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified!

2. For mighty works for Thee, prepare
and strengthen ev'ry heart;
Come, take possession of Thine own,
And never-more depart.

Lord, send the old-time power, the Pentecostal power!
Thy flood-gates of blessing on us throw open wide!
Lord, send the old-time power, the Pentecostal power,
That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified!

3 All self consume, all sin destroy!
With earnest zeal endue
Each waiting heart to work for Thee;
O Lord, our faith renew!

Lord, send the old-time power, the Pentecostal power!
Thy flood-gates of blessing on us throw open wide!
Lord, send the old-time power, the Pentecostal power,
That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified!

4. Speak, Lord! before Thy throne we wait,
Thy promise we believe,
And will not let Thee go until
The blessing we receive.

Lord, send the old-time power, the Pentecostal power!
Thy flood-gates of blessing on us throw open wide!
Lord, send the old-time power, the Pentecostal power,
That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified!
