• “When we forget and seek for stars, show us Thy wounds, Thy scars.” – Amy Carmichael

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.

  • “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon
