Send the Holy Fire

On the altar now I lay

Author: Joel A. Erickson (2004)
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 On the altar now I lay,
For Thy cleansing, Lord, I pray,
Let the work be done today,
Wholly to be Thine.

Send, oh, send the holy fire,
Fervent is my heart’s desire,
I would join the holy choir,
Wholly sanctified.

2 All, yes, all I consecrate,
The Refiner’s flame I wait,
Let me reach that blessed state,
Full salvation find. [Refrain]

3 Savior, send the holy fire,
Light the consecration pyre,
Let the purging be entire,
Sanctify my soul. [Refrain]

4 Father, faith inspire in me,
Precious promises I see,
Let me touch them, touching Thee,
Witness peace within. [Refrain]
