    Verse 1
    Lord, we believe to us and ours
    The apostolic promise given;
    We wait the pentecostal powers,
    The Holy Ghost sent down from heaven

    Verse 2
    The Holy Ghost, if I depart,
    The Comforter, shall surely come,
    Shall make the contrite sinner's heart
    His loved, His everlasting home.

    Verse 3
    Assembled here with one accord,
    Calmly we wait the promised grace,
    The purchase of our dying Lord:
    Come, Holy Ghost, and fill the place.

    Verse 4
    If every one that asks may find,
    If still Thou dost on sinners fall,
    Come as a mighty rushing wind;
    Great grace be now upon us all.

    Verse 5
    Behold, to Thee our souls aspire,
    And languish Thy descent to meet:
    Kindle in each the living fire,
    And fix in every heart Thy seat.
