Which are you?

Be a better “peace-maker,”


not a bitter “piece maker.”

The children of Jacob were bent making bricks.

Pharaoh, satan’s type, was up to his old tricks.

Goshen had looked good when they first came down.

Sins always shows its laughter before its grim frown.


Then God heard their cry; deliverance soon came.

Broken were the shackles, gone was the shame.

The approach to the Sea had its crisis hour;

But God saw them through (and He will you!)

With His mighty power.

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.

2. 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.

3. 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.
