Small music group, recorded live:


Come, O come, and fill this temple,
Fill this temple with the glory of the Lord.
Come, O come, and fill this temple,
Fill this temple with the glory of the Lord.

There's a place of unity, a place for fellowship,
There's a place where God's people come together,
Where the Spirit of the Lord descends,
And binds our hearts as one,
And we're filled afresh with holy power.

So we wait with open hearts,
We're hungry for your love,
And we worship now the name of Jesus.
Forgive us, Lord, for grieving you,
And warm our hearts anew
With the fire and zeal of Pentecost.

Alternative verse 2:
Lord we wait, with open arms,
We're hungry for Your touch,
Lord, we worship now Your Name, O Jesus.
Forgive us Lord, for grieving You,
Pour down, Your heart anew,
With the fire and the zeal of Pentecost!
