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.

Send the Holy Fire

On the altar now I lay

Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1 On the altar now I lay,
For Thy cleansing, Lord, I pray,
Let the work be done today,
Wholly to be Thine.

Send, oh, send the holy fire,
Fervent is my heart’s desire,
I would join the holy choir,
Wholly sanctified.

2 All, yes, all I consecrate,
The Refiner’s flame I wait,
Let me reach that blessed state,
Full salvation find. [Refrain]

3 Savior, send the holy fire,
Light the consecration pyre,
Let the purging be entire,
Sanctify my soul. [Refrain]

4 Father, faith inspire in me,
Precious promises I see,
Let me touch them, touching Thee,
Witness peace within. [Refrain]
