Lyrics

Verse 1
The pow’r that fell at Pentecost,
When in that upper room,
Upon the watching, waiting ones,
The Holy Ghost had come,
Remaineth evermore the same,
Unchanging still, O praise His name.

Chorus
The pow’r, the pow’r, the Pentecostal pow’r
Is just the same today,
Is just the same today;
The pow’r, the pow’r, the Pentecostal pow’r
Is just the same today.

Verse 2
“Ye shall have pow’r (said Jesus) when
The Holy Ghost is come;”
Your loosened tongues shall speak His praise,
Your lips no more be dumb,
The timid, shrinking ones be brave,
To reach a hand the lost to save.

Verse 3
The wav’ring shall steadfast become;
The weak in faith be strong,
With holy boldness going forth,
Denouncing sin and wrong;
With burning zeal each heart aflame,
A whole salvation to proclaim.

Verse 4
Breathe on us now the Holy Ghost,
The young and old inspire;
Let each receive his Pentecost,
Send hearts and tongues of fire;
Thou wonderful transforming pow’r,
Come now in this accepted hour.
