Representative Text

1 O Sacred Flame, O Living Fire,
Descend upon me now;
Oh, may this inbred sin expire
While here I humbly bow.

Refrain:
Come, fill me now, oh, fill me now!
Come, Jesus, fill me now!
Come fill me with Thy perfect love,
Come, Savior, fill me now.

2 Burn up the dross Thou findest there,
Until I’m pure within,
And make this temple bright and fair,
Thy reign in me begin. [Refrain]

3 Come quickly, Lord, take full control
Of all, my will, my heart,
And reign supreme within my soul,
That we may never part. [Refrain]

4 Infuse new life, new faith, new love
Into this soul of mine;
Illuminate me from above,
And make me wholly Thine. [Refrain]
