Now from the altar of our hearts
Let flames of love arise;
Assist us, Lord, to offer up
Our lives a sacrifice!
Millions have yet to hear of Thee,
Oh, come our hearts inspire
Till we shall give Thee everything
And set the world on fire.
Let reapers now be multiplied,
Lord, send them forth today;
Thou hast declared the fields are white,
Let many now obey.
O Father, stir us as we go,
Our hearts, O Spirit, fill;
And make our yielded lives to glow
With zeal to do Thy will.
