So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

97. A New Touch of Fire

1 For a fresh anointing, Lord, for service
Come we now in Jesus’ precious name;
For the blessed Pentecostal fullness,
Every heart with heav’nly love aflame.

Send a new touch of fire on our souls, Lord,
Send it now, Lord, send it now, Lord;
Touch our lips today with the living coals,
Send a new touch of fire on our souls.

2 Make us free to tell the gospel story,
Liberty in service may we have;
Showing forth the Savior’s grace and glory,
Telling of His wondrous pow’r to save. [Refrain]

3 Bringing all we have in consecration
As a living sacrifice for Thee;
Trusting for an uttermost salvation,
Jesus’ precious blood our only plea. [Refrain]

4 Let the great Refiner throughly purge us,
Purify our hearts like as by fire;
While for all the sanctifying fullness
Here our waiting, longing hearts aspire. [Refrain]
