Advent Hymnals

166. O FOR THAT FLAME!

Christ in Song,

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

2.
Where is that spirit, Lord, which dwelt 
In Abram's breast, and sealed him thine?
Which made Paul's heart with sorrow melt,
And glow with energy divine?

3.
Is not thy grace as mighty now
As when Elijah felt its pow'r?
When glory beamed from Moses' brow,
Or Job endured the trying hour?

4.
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.
