I got it, the Holy Ghost power.
Do you want it, the Holy Ghost power.
I need it, the Holy Ghost power.
Go back to the altar,
Down on your knees,
Stay there ‘til you get the Holy Ghost power.

I remember a long time ago
When the saints, they use to pray,
Down at the altar,
Where they sought the Lord,
And they tarry for the Holy Ghost.


Vamp 1:
Go back
And get that Holy Ghost power.

Vamp 2:
Go back

Go back to the altar,
Down on your knees,
Stay there ‘til you get the Holy Ghost power.

    This song means that we need to stop sinning in our churches and actually be "holy unto god" like the bible says. They only way to be holy unto god is with the power of the holy spirit.
