Ida L. Reed


Give us, Lord, Thy Holy Spirit,
Let us glorify Thy name;
Light within our hearts, we pray Thee,
Now, the Pentecostal flame.


Come, Thou blessèd Holy Spirit,
Send Thy showers of blessing down;
Let the fullness of Thy presence
All this hour with glory crown.

Loose our tongues, that we may praise Thee,
That we may to others show
All the sweetness of the blessing
Thou art waiting to bestow.


Souls are seeking Thy salvation,
We would lead them, Lord, to Thee;
Give to us the Spirit’s power,
Let us each Thy witness be.
