Representative Text

1 I sang one day, a sad sweet song,
‘Twas at the twilight hour;
A flame of love came gently down—
I felt its melting pow’r.

O the blessing and the power that the Lord gave me then,
I never shall forget, I never shall forget;
Even now ’tis stealing over me again and again,
It lingers with me yet.

2 So filled was I, I sang no more,
My heart o’erflowed with bliss;
With tearful eye and throbbing breast
I knelt in thankfulness. [Refrain]

3 Thus, oft my Saviour comes to me,
When all is lone and still;
Each blessing makes me long the more
To do His holy will. [Refrain]

4 I praise the Lord, the fire still burns
With Pentecostal flame;
The altar of my soul’s aglow,
All glory to His name. [Refrain]
