1 The prophetic days of burning,
Lo, in wonder we behold;
And the flames are now consuming
Everything but purest gold.

Fire! fire! hallelujah!
Fire breaks from Heaven’s throne:
Fire testing and revealing
Who will be for God alone.

2 We have reached the days of Daniel
And Messiah’s wondrous reign
Issues streams of fire before Him,
And His wheels a burning flame. [Refrain]

3 See His angels casting fire
From their censers all around,
Down on Babel’s burning mountain,
As they fly with trumpet sound. [Refrain]

4 Lo, a prepatory judgment
Now is sweeping o’er the land;
They who ’bide it’s burning Spirit
In the final day may stand. [Refrain]

5 Hail the burning visitation,
The consumption long decreed,
Overflowing with salvation
To the remnant holy seed! [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
