VERSE 1:
O for a closer walk with God,
a calm and heav'nly frame,
a light to shine upon the road
leading me to the Lamb!

VERSE 2:
Where is the blessedness I knew
when first I saw the Lord?
Where is the soul-refreshing view
of Jesus and his Word?

CHORUS:
O fire of God, come burn in me;
renew a holy passion till Christ
my deepest longing be
my never failing fountain,
my never failing fountain.

VERSE 3:
What peaceful hours I once enjoyed!
How sweet their memory still!
But they have left an aching void
the world can never fill.

VERSE 4:
The dearest idol I have known,
whate'er that idol be,
help me to tear it from Thy throne
and worship only thee.

CHORUS:
O fire of God, come burn in me;
renew a holy passion till Christ
my deepest longing be
my never failing fountain,
my never failing fountain.

VERSE 5:
So shall my walk be close with God,
calm and serene my frame;
so purer light shall mark the road
that leads me to the Lamb.

CHORUS:
O fire of God, come burn in me;
renew a holy passion till Christ
my deepest longing be
my never failing fountain,
my never failing fountain.
