8-7s. Matthew iii. 11. 1 PURE baptismal Fire divine, All thy heavenly powers exert, In my deepest darkness shine, Spread thy warmth throughout my heart; Come, thou Spirit of burning come, Comforter through Jesus given; All my earthly dross consume, Fill my soul with love from heaven.
2 Love in me intensely burn, Love mine inmost essence seize, All into thy nature turn, All into thy holiness! Spark of thy celestial flame, Then my soul shall upward move, Trembling on with steady aim, Seek and join its source above.
