Representative Text

1 When to the Lord I came,
His promises to claim,
His wondrous pow’r transformed and made me whole!
He took my sins away,
And, praise His name, today
His love is burning in my soul!

‘Tis burning in my soul!
‘Tis burning in my soul!
I’ve yielded all to His control!
The fire of holy love,
Descending from above,
Today is burning in my soul.

2 From sin I now am free!
My Counselor is He,
For I have yielded all to His control;
No foe have I to fear,
While Christ, my Lord is near,
His love is burning in my soul! [Refrain]

3 His presence is my joy,
His service my employ;
Let tempests rage, and stormy billows roll,
With His Almighty arm
He shelters me from harm,
His love is burning in my soul! [Refrain]
