Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 It’s when I meet the risen Lord,
I feel the fire burning in my heart;
And he explains the Living Word,
I feel the fire burning in my heart.

Refrain:
In my heart, in my heart,
I feel the fire burning in my heart.
In my heart, in my heart,
I feel the fire burning in my heart.

2 When faith takes hold on Jesus’ name,
I feel the fire burning in my heart;
And he applies the mystic flame,
I feel the fire burning in my heart. [Refrain]

3 It’s when anointed from above,
I feel the fire burning in my heart;
And witnessing for perfect love,
I feel the fire burning in my heart. [Refrain]

4 It’s when glad vict’ry comes to greet,
I feel the fire burning in my heart;
A captive freed, at Jesus’ feet,
I feel the fire burning in my heart. [Refrain]
