210 - O For That Flame of Living Fire

MIDI MP3 Partition

1
O for that flame of living fire
Which shone so bright in saints of old;
Which bade their souls to heaven aspire,
Calm in distress, in danger bold!

2
Where is that spirit, Lord, which dwelt
In Abramís breast, and sealed him thine?
Which made Paulís heart with sorrow melt,
And glow with energy divine?

3
That spirit which from age to age
Proclaimed thy love, and taught thy ways?
Brightened Isaiahís vivid page,
And breathed in Davidís hallowed lays?

4
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?

5
Remember, Lord, the ancient days;
Renew thy work, thy grace restore;
And while to thee our hearts we raise,
On us thy Holy Spirit pour.
