Ida L. Reed (1865–1951)


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.
