1. Burn, fire of God! My ransomed soul possessing;
Pure fire Thou art, and I would dwell in Thee.
Light of my life, true source f ev’ry blessing,
Grant all my days one holy flame to be.
2. Burn, fire of God! Thy grace and glory knowing,
My cleansed heart shall be all fire within:
Love all-constraining, tenderness o’erflowing,
One kindling passion other lives to win.
3. Burn, fire of God! Thy cloven tongue bestowing,
Baptizing me with heavenly energy.
Touched with live coals from off Thine altar glowing,
My purged lips shall speak alone of Thee.
4. Burn, fire of God! With
Till mirrored from my deeps Thine eyes shall see.
In purest gold Thy perfect image shining:
Thy Christ revealed in clear irradiancy.
