Ye shall receive power after the Holy Ghost is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.@Acts 1:8

There was power, O Lord, in the days of old,
To kindle a fire in hearts grown cold;
That we on Thy word may now lay hold,
Lord, send that power again.

Refrain

Lord, send the power again,
O send the power again!
We believe on Thy name,
And Thy promise we claim,
Lord, send the power again.

There was power by which every tongue could speak,
New life giving power unto the weak;
That sent them the wandering ones to seek—
Lord, send that power again.

Refrain

There was power to set every captive free
And give to Thy servants liberty
To speak and to pray and work for Thee—
Lord, send that power again.

Refrain

There was power, O Lord, in the old time prayer,
It thrilled every heart and lingered there,
Till we in Thy glory seemed to share—
Lord, send that power again.
