Let the Fire Fall on Me

Full Text

1 Lord, I would be wholly Thine,
I would do Thy will divine,
From the world and sin and self I would be free;
On the altar now I lie,
And with all my heart I cry,
Let the holy fire from heaven fall on me.

Let the fire fall on me,
Let the fire fall on me;
The fire of Pentecost,
Consuming sin and dross,
Let the holy fire from heaven fall on me.

2 I would have sufficient grace
Every foe to bravely face,
And an overcomer evermore to be;
That I well may fill my place,
And that I may win the race,
Let the holy fire from heaven fall on me. [Refrain]

3 Holy Spirit from above,
Fill my longing soul with love,
Till the Master’s image all in me may see;
Make me gentle, true, and kind,
Meek of heart, and humble mind,
Let the holy fire from heaven fall on me. [Refrain]

4 In the kingdom I would stay,
There to labor night and day,
Any way and anywhere Thy will may be;
But that I may do my best,
And that others may be blest,
Let the holy fire from heaven fall on me. [Refrain]
