Fill Me Now
Words by Eldwood H. Stokes
Music by John R. Sweney

Ephesians 5:18
"And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;"

divider

          Hover o'er me, Holy Spirit,
          Bathe my trembling heart and brow;
          Fill me with Thy hallowed presence,
          Come, O come and fill me now.

            Chorus
            Fill me now, fill me now,
            Jesus, come and fill me now;
            Fill me with Thy hallowed presence,
            Come, O come, and fill me now.

          Thou canst fill me, gracious Spirit,
          Though I cannot tell Thee how;
          But I need Thee, greatly need Thee,
          Come, O come and fill me now.

            Chorus
            Fill me now, fill me now,
            Jesus, come and fill me now;
            Fill me with Thy hallowed presence,
            Come, O come, and fill me now.

          I am weakness, full of weakness,
          At Thy sacred feet I bow;
          Blessed, divine, eternal Spirit,
          Fill with power and fill me now.

            Chorus
            Fill me now, fill me now,
            Jesus, come and fill me now;
            Fill me with Thy hallowed presence,
            Come, O come, and fill me now.

          Cleanse and comfort, bless and save me,
          Bathe, O bathe my heart and brow;
          Thou art comforting and saving,
          Thou art sweetly filling now.

            Chorus
            Fill me now, fill me now,
            Jesus, come and fill me now;
            Fill me with Thy hallowed presence,
            Come, O come, and fill me now.
