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

            Chorus
            Lord, send the old-time pow'r,
            The Pentecostal pow'r!
            Thy floodgates of blessing on us throw open wide!
            Lord, send the old-time pow'r,
            The Pentecostal pow'r,
            That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified.

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

            Chorus
            Lord, send the old-time pow'r,
            The Pentecostal pow'r!
            Thy floodgates of blessing on us throw open wide!
            Lord, send the old-time pow'r,
            The Pentecostal pow'r,
            That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified.

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

            Chorus
            Lord, send the old-time pow'r,
            The Pentecostal pow'r!
            Thy floodgates of blessing on us throw open wide!
            Lord, send the old-time pow'r,
            The Pentecostal pow'r,
            That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified.

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

            Chorus
            Lord, send the old-time pow'r,
            The Pentecostal pow'r!
            Thy floodgates of blessing on us throw open wide!
            Lord, send the old-time pow'r,
            The Pentecostal pow'r,
            That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified.
