Thou Christ of burning


    • Thou Christ of burning, cleansing flame, 
    • send the fire, send the fire! 
    • Thy blood-bought gift today we claim, 
    • send the fire, send the fire! 
    • Look down and see this waiting host, 
    • give us the promised Holy Ghost, 
    • we want another Pentecost, 
    • send the fire, send the fire! 

    • God of Elijah, hear our cry! 
    • Oh, make us fit to live or die! 
    • To burn up every trace of sin, 
    • to bring the light and glory in, 
    • the revolution now begin. 

    • 'This fire we want, for fire we plead, 
    • the fire will meet our every need, 
    • for strength to ever do the right, 
    • for grace to conquer in the fight, 
    • for power to walk the world in white. 

    • To make our weak hearts strong and brave, 
    • to live a dying world to save; 
    • oh, see us on Thy altar lay 
    • our lives, our all, this very day; 
    • to crown the offering now, we pray
