195 O For That Flame.
O for that flame of living fire,
Which shone so bright in saints of old;
Which bade their souls to heaven aspire,
Calm in distress, in danger bold!
Where is that spirit, Lord, which dwelt,
In Abrams breast, and sealed him Thine?
Which made Pauls heart with sorrow melt,
And glow with energy divine?
That spirit which from age to age,
Proclaimed Thy love, and taught Thy ways?
Brightened Isaiahs vivid page,
And breathed in Davids hallowed lays?
Is not Thy grace as mighty now,
As when Elijah felt its power?
When glory beamed from Moses brow,
Or Job endured the trying hour?
Remember, Lord, the ancient days;
Renew Thy work, Thy grace restore;
And while to Thee our hearts we raise,
On us Thy holy Spirit pour.
