Come In Earnest Fervent Prayer


Come in earnest fervent prayer,
To the Lord our Savior,
They who in his Spirit seek,
Shall receive his favor.

Refrain:
Glory to his holy name,
Fervent prayer availeth,
Now and evermore the same,
Fervent prayer availeth.

On that Pentecostal day,
When their prayers were blended,
How upon the Christian host,
Tongues of fire descended. [Refrain]

When the Lord’s disciples prayed,
Faith in him possessing,
How upon their foll’wers came
Every needed blessing. [Refrain]

So we may be every day,
His rich grace receiving,
If we only ask aright,
Humbly and believing. [Refrain]
