They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.@Acts 2:2-3

Charles H. Gabriel, in Great Revival Hymns, No. 2, by Homer Rodeheaver & Bentley Ackley (Chicago, Illinois: The Rodeheaver Company, 1912) (🔊 pdf nwc).

Lord, as of old, at Pentecost,
Thou didst Thy power display,
With cleansing, purifying flame,
Descend on us today.

Refrain

Lord, send the old-time power, the Pentecostal power!
Thy floodgates of blessing, on us throw open wide!
Lord, send the old-time power, the Pentecostal power!
That sinners be converted and Thy name glorified!

For mighty works for Thee, prepare
And strengthen every heart;
Come, take possession of Thine own,
And never more depart.

Refrain

All self consume, all sin destroy!
With earnest zeal endue
Each waiting heart to work for Thee;
O Lord, our faith renew!

Refrain

Speak, Lord! before Thy throne we wait,
Thy promise we believe,
And will not let Thee go until
The blessing we receive.
