SEE how great a flame aspires,

By A Collection of Hymns

      1 SEE how great a flame aspires,
      Kindled by a spark of grace!
      Jesu's love the nations fires,
      Sets the kingdoms on a blaze;
      To bring fire on earth he came,
      Kindled in some hearts it is,
      O that all might catch the flame,
      All partake the glorious bliss!

      2 When he first the work begun,
      Small and feeble was his day;
      Now the word doth swiftly run,
      Now it wins its widening way;
      More and more it spreads and grows,
      Ever mighty to prevail,
      Sin's strong-holds it now o'erthrows,
      Shakes the trembling gates of hell.

      3 Sons of God, your Saviour praise!
      He the door hath opened wide;
      He hath given the word of grace,
      Jesu's word is glorified;
      Jesus, mighty to redeem,
      He alone the work hath wrought;
      Worthy is the work of him,
      Him who spake a world from nought.

      4 Saw ye not the cloud arise,
      Little as a human hand?
      Now it spreads along the skies,
      Hangs o'er all the thirsty land;
      Lo! the promise of a shower
      Drops already from above;
      But the Lord will shortly pour
      All the Spirit of his love!
