Heavenly Fire.

"O for a spark of heavenly fire,
From the Redeemer's throne,
The pure and permanent desire
Of loving [God] alone!

The pure desire unquenchable
Ev'n now I seem to prove,
But only Thou, my God, canst tell
If Thee I wish to love.

Vouchsafe me then the wish sincere,
The wish sincere fulfil,
And stamp me with thy character
According to thy will:

Accomplish'd see thine own desires,
And O! be satisfied,
When singing with th'immortal squires
I triumph at thy side.

-From The Unpublished Poetry of Charles Wesley, Vol. 3
