1 O Lord, who came from realms above
the pure celestial fire to impart,
kindle a flame of sacred love
upon the altar of my heart.

2 There let it for your glory burn
with inextinguishable blaze,
and trembling to its source return
in humble prayer and fervent praise.

3 Jesus, confirm my heart's desire
to work and speak and think for you;
still let me guard the holy fire,
and still in me your gift renew.

4 Here let me prove your perfect will,
my acts of faith and love repeat,
till death your endless mercies seal
and make the sacrifice complete!
