O God of burning altar fire by Amy Carmichael

  • O God of burning altar fire,
    O God of love’s consuming flame,
    Make pure the flame of our desire
    To win the lost to seek Thy Name.
  • There is no coldness, Lord, in Thee,
    Oh, keep us kindled lest we bring
    To our dear Lord of Calvary,
    Dead ashes for our offering.
  • Dead ashes, husk of corn for wheat
    Lord of our consecration vow,
    We gather round Thy wounded feet,
    We see the thorn about Thy brow.
  • Oh, by Thy cross and passion, Lord,
    Grant us this plea, this sovereign plea,
    Save us from choosing peace for sword,
    And give us souls to give to Thee.
