Thou who camest from above The pure celestial fire to impart,
Thou who camest from above The pure celestial fire to impart, Kindle a flame of sacred love On the mean altar of my heart!
There let it for thy glory burn With inextinguishable blaze; And trembling to its source return, In humble prayer and fervent praise.
Jesus, confirm my heart's desire To work, and speak, and think for thee; Still let me guard the holy fire, And still stir up thy gift in me;
Ready for all thy perfect will, My acts of faith and love repeat, Till death thy endless mercies seal, And make the sacrifice complete.
