Are you long­ing for the full­ness
Of the bless­ing of the Lord
In your heart and life to­day?
Claim the pro­mise of your Fa­ther;
Come ac­cord­ing to His Word,
In the bless­èd, old time way.


He will fill your heart to­day to ov­er­flow­ing.
As the Lord com­mand­eth you,
Bring your ves­sels, not a few.
He will fill your heart to­day to ov­er­flow­ing
With the Ho­ly Ghost and pow­er.

Bring your emp­ty earth­en ves­sels,
Clean through Je­sus’ pre­cious blood.
Come, ye needy, one and all;
And in hu­man con­se­cra­tion
Wait be­fore the throne of God
Till the Ho­ly Ghost shall fall.


Like the cruse of oil un­fail­ing
Is His grace for­ev­er­more,
And His love un­chang­ing still;
And ac­cord­ing to His pr­omise,
With the Ho­ly Ghost and pow­er
He will ev­ery ves­sel fill.
