Send The Fire!

  By General William Booth

God of Elijah, hear the cry!
Send the fire!
Oh, make us fit to live or die!
Send the fire!
To burn up every trace of sin,
To bring the light and glory in,
The revolution now begin,
Send the fire! 

Thou Christ of burning, cleansing flame,
Send the fire!
Thy blood-bought gift today we claim,
Send the fire!
Look down and see this waiting host,
Give us the promised Holy Ghost,
We want another Pentecost,
Send the fire! 

’Tis fire we need, for fire we plead,
Send the fire!
The fire will meet our ev’ry need,
Send the fire!
For strength to ever do the right,
For grace to conquer in the fight,
For power to walk the world in white,
Send the fire! 

To make our weak hearts strong and brave,
Send the fire!
To live a dying world to save;
Send the fire!
Oh, see us on the altar lay
Our lives, our all, this very day;
To crown the offering now, we pray
Send the fire!
