Prayer For The Holy Spirit
 By Oswald J. Smith

Lord, anoint me with Thy Spirit!
  Fill me with Thy power divine;
Take away the love of sinning,
  Make, oh, make me wholly Thine!

Lord, anoint me with Thy Spirit,
  As I wait and watch and pray;
Grant a pentecost from Heaven,
  Send, oh, send Him, Lord, today!

I am hungry for the fullness,
  I am thirsting, Lord, for Thee;
Fill, oh, fill me with Thy Spirit--
  Wholly Thine I want to be.

I am praying, waiting, trusting,
  For the power of Pentecost;
Lord, anoint me with Thy Spirit--
  Send Him now at any cost.


Saviour, cleanse and make me holy,
  Burn out every base desire;
Fill, oh, fill me with Thy Spirit--
  Lord, anoint and send the fire.

Lo, He comes, the Holy Spirit!
  Now with joy my soul is thrilled;
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
  All my heart with love is filled!

Worldly things no longer lure me,
  I am Thine and Thine alone;
All I have is on the altar,
  And my heart is now Thy throne.
