Lyrics

Verse 1
Come, Lord, and let thy pow’r
On each and all descend,
While gather’d in thy holy name,
Before thy throne we bend.

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

Verse 2
Come, Lord, and let thy pow’r
Each tho’t of self remove;
And may we feel as ne’er before
Thy pure and perfect love.

Verse 3
Our waiting, longing eyes,
Are looking up to thee,
O may we, in thy smiling face,
Our Father’s glory see.

Verse 4
Come, Lord, thy pow’r alone
Thy work of grace can do;
Now let is consecrate to thee
Our hearts and lives anew.

Verse 5
Be ours, with fervent zeal,
Thy blood-stain’d cross to bear;
Till at thy feet we lay it down,
A crown of life to wear.
