Lyrics

I need to be filled with the Spirit,
Each moment of every day,
I need to be filled in the morning,
Ere starting upon my way.

Refrain

I need to be filled, Lord Jesus,
I need to be filled each day;
I need to be filled with the Spirit,
Each moment along life’s way.

I need be to filled for the home life,
I need it for work outside,
I need it alone in God’s presence,
That I may in Him abide.

Refrain

I need to be filled with the Spirit,
To hear or to read His Word,
I need to be filled when by speaking,
I witness for Christ my Lord.

Refrain

I need it, and oh, I may have it,
For by His enabling power,
The Spirit whom He has once given,
Can fill me this very hour.
