Words by Charles Wesley (1707-1788), a priest of the Church of England


1.  O Thou, who camest from above,

The pure celestial fire to impart,

Kindle a flame of sacred love

On the mean altar of my heart!

2.  There let it for thy glory burn,

With inextinguishable blaze,

And trembling to its source return,

In humble love and fervent praise.

3.  Jesus, confirm my heart’s desire,

To work, and speak, and think, for thee;

Still let me guard the holy fire,

And still stir up thy gift in me;

4.  Ready for all thy perfect will,

My acts of faith and love repeat,

Till death thy endless mercies seal,

And make the sacrifice complete.
