The United Methodist Hymnal


Jesus, Thine All-Victorious Love

1.	Jesus, thine all-victorious love 
	shed in my heart abroad;
	then shall my feet no longer rove,
	rooted and fixed in God.

2.	O that in me the sacred fire
	might now begin to glow;
	burn up the dross of base desire
	and make the mountains flow!

3.	O that it now from heaven might fall
	and all my sins consume!
	Come, Holy Ghost, for thee I call,
	Spirit of burning, come!

4.	Refining fire, go through my heart,
	illuminate my soul;
	scatter thy life through every part
	and sanctify the whole.
