Fire of God, undying Flame

1.
Fire of God, undying Flame, 
Spirit who in splendor came, 
let your heat my soul refine, 
till it glows with love divine. 

2.
Breath of God, that swept in power 
in the Pentecostal hour, 
holy Breath, be now in me 
source of vital energy. 

3.
Strength of God, your might within 
conquers sorrow, pain and sin. 
Fortify from evil's art 
all the gateways of my heart. 

4.
Truth of God, your piercing rays 
penetrate my secret ways. 
May the light that shames my sin 
guide me holier paths to win. 

5.
Love of God, your grace profound 
knows not either age or bound. 
Come, my heart's own guest to be; 
dwell forevermore in me.
