Lyrics

All around this very hour,
Falls there streams of heav’nly power;
Falling now so full and free,
Praise the Lord, it’s filling me.

Refrain

Hallelujah! feel the power,
Falling like a mighty shower;
Coming now so full and free,
Praise the Lord, it’s filling me.

Send us showers of heav’nly grace,
Let Thy presence fill this place;
Speak the word, and it shall be,
That Thy showers fall on me.

Refrain

Thou alone this power canst give,
Without which I dare not live;
Give me power to work for Thee,
Let the stream reach even me.
