Light of Life, Seraphic Fire
By Charles Wesley (1707–1788)
 
LIGHT of life, seraphic fire,
  Love divine, thyself impart:
Every fainting soul inspire,
  Shine in every drooping heart;
Every mournful sinner cheer,        5
  Scatter all our guilty gloom;
Son of God, appear, appear!
  To thy human temples come!
 
Come in this accepted hour;
  Bring thy heavenly kingdom in;        10
Fill us with thy glorious power,
  Rooting out the seeds of sin:
Nothing more can we require,
  We will covet nothing less;
Be thou all our heart’s desire,        15
  All our joy, and all our peace!
