O GOD OF BURNING, CLEANSING FLAME

William Booth

 

VERSE 1:
O God of burning
Cleansing flame
Send the fire

Your blood-bought gift
Today we claim
Send the fire today

 

Look down and see
This waiting host
And send the promised
Holy Ghost

We need another Pentecost
Send the fire today
Send the fire today


VERSE 2:
God of Elijah hear our cry
Send the fire

And make us fit
To live or die
Send the fire today

 

To burn up every trace of sin
To bring the light and glory in

The revolution now begins
Send the fire today
Send the fire today

 

VERSE 3:
It's fire we want
For fire we plead
Send the fire

The fire will meet
Our every need
Send the fire today

 

For strength to always
Do what's right
For grace to conquer
In the fight

For power to walk
The world in white
Send the fire today
Send the fire today

 

 

VERSE 4:
To make our weak hearts
Strong and brave
Send the fire

To live a dying
World to save
Send the fire today

 

Oh see us on
Your altar lay
We give our lives
To You today

So crown the off'ring
Now we pray
Send the fire today
Send the fire today

 

 

VERSE 5:
To make our weak hearts

Send the fire

To live a dying
World to save
Send the fire today

 

Oh see us on
Your altar lay
We give our lives
To You today

So crown the off'ring
Now we pray
Send the fire today
Send the fire today
