You can feel the excitement mounting
from the very first song,
For we expect a visitation of the Holy Ghost
Our problems from the day suddenly grow
As we gather in God's house to worship Him!
Though not many of us are "blood kin,"
Through Christ's blood we are born again!
It is only through God's amazing grace,
That we of like faith can gather in one place!
Friend, in the course of only a few days,
God will perform in His miraculous ways!
The mighty power of God will be revealed,
As folks are saved and sick bodies are healed!
Ah, we shall be abundantly blessed and blessed
We Holiness folk call it "gettin' in!"
As we become like minded, the old with the
We might dance in the Spirit and speak in
It's a time of refreshing and spiritual rest,
For the love of God flows from breast to breast!
We have met once again with old friends,
And before we hardly know it the meetin' ends!
What a hallelujah time we have all had,
Each son and daughter, and mom and dad!
We find that the memories linger yet!
It's a religious experience we won't forget!
So, once more as we wipe away each tear,
We make plans to attend again next year!
