223. The Consumption Decree

1 The prophetic days of burning,
Lo, in wonder we behold;
And the flames are now consuming
Everything but purest gold.

Refrain:
Fire! fire! hallelujah!
Fire breaks from Heaven’s throne:
Fire testing and revealing
Who will be for God alone.

2 We have reached the days of Daniel
And Messiah’s wondrous reign
Issues streams of fire before Him,
And His wheels a burning flame. [Refrain]

3 See His angels casting fire
From their censers all around,
Down on Babel’s burning mountain,
As they fly with trumpet sound. [Refrain]

4 Lo, a prepatory judgment
Now is sweeping o’er the land;
They who ’bide it’s burning Spirit
In the final day may stand. [Refrain]

5 Hail the burning visitation,
The consumption long decreed,
Overflowing with salvation
To the remnant holy seed! [Refrain]
