A city full of churches; Great preachers, lettered men!

Grand music, choirs and organs; if these all fail, what then?

Good workers, eager, earnest; who labor hour by hour,

But where, oh where, my brother; Is God’s almighty power?

It is the Holy Spirit, that quickeneth the soul;

God will not take man-worship, nor bow to man’s control.

No human innovation, no skill, or worldly art,

Can give a true repentance, or break the sinners’ heart.

We may have human wisdom; grand singing, great success.

There may be fine equipment, but these things do not bless

God wants a pure vessel, anointed lips and true,

A man filled with the Spirit, to speak His message through.
