O Give Us Lord A Pentecost


Oh, give us, Lord, a pentecost,
This waiting throne inspire;
And, as thou did’st in times of old,
Baptize us all with fire.

Chorus:
Come, dearest Lord, baptize us now,
Now let us feel thy power:
Oh, consecrate us all thine own,
And seal us from this hour.

Oh, give us, Lord, a pentecost;
Our faith takes hold on thee,–
A faith that cannot be denied,
When thou art all its plea.
[Chorus]

Oh, give us, Lord, a pentecost,
An unction from above.
A power that sweeps thro’ every heart,
And fills it with thy love.
[Chorus]
