When the Power of God Descended

 

VERSE 1

 

When the power of God descended

On the day of Pentecost,

All the days of waiting ended,

They received the Holy Ghost

 

Chorus

O Lord, send the power just now,

O Lord send the power just now,

O Lord send the power just now,

And baptize everyone.

 

VERSE 2

 

Tongues of flame came down upon them,

And they preached the word in power,

Listening multitudes awakened

Turned to God that very hour

 

VERSE 3

 

We are waiting Holy Spirit

We are all of one accord,

Lord fulfill just now the promise

That is given in thy Word..

 

VERSE 4

 

Fill and thrill us with Thy presence,

Grant the blessing that we need

Flood our souls with wondrous glory,

While the prayer of faith we plead.
