1 O that in me the sacred fire
Might now begin to glow,
Burn up the dross of base desire
And make the mountains flow!

Refrain:
On the aged and the young let it fall,
Thy promise now fulfill,
It will guide us on to Truth—let it fall,
And sanctify the whole.

2 O that it now from heav’n might fall,
And all my sins consume!
Come, Holy Ghost, for thee I call;
Spirit of burning, come! [Refrain]

3 Refining fire, go thro’ my heart;
Illuminate my soul;
Scatter thy life thro’ ev’ry part,
And sanctify the whole. [Refrain]

4 My steadfast soul, from falling free,
Shall then no longer move,
While Christ is all the world to me,
And all my heart is love. [Refrain]
