Hymn/Song Information

O for that flame of living fire




O for that flame of living fire,
Which shone so bright
in saints of old!
Which bade their souls
to Heavín aspire,
Calm in distress, in danger bold.


Where is that Spirit,
Lord, which dwelt
In Abrahamís breast,
and sealed him Thine?
Which made Paulís heart
with sorrow melt,
And glow with energy divine?


That Spirit which, from age to age,
Proclaimed Thy love,
and taught Thy ways?
Brightened Isaiahís vivid page,
And breathed into
Davidís hallowed lays?


Is not Thy grace as mighty now
As when Elijah felt its power;
When glory beamed from Mosesí brow,
Or Job endured the trying hour?


Remember, Lord, the ancient days;
Renew Thy work; thy grace restore;
Warm our cold hearts
to prayer and praise,
And teach us how to love Thee more.
