The Refiner’s Fire


There burns a fire with sacred heat, white hot with Holy Flame;

And all who dare pass through it’s blaze will not emerge the same.
Some as bronze, some as silver, and some as gold; there with great skill;
All are hammered by their sufferings on the anvil of His will.

 

The Refiner’s Fire
Has now become my soul’s desire;
Purged and cleansed and purified,
That the Lord be glorified!
He is consuming my soul;
Refining me, making me whole.
No matter what I may lose
I choose

The Refiner’s Fire!

 

I’m learning now to trust His touch, to crave the Fire’s embrace;

For though my past with sin was etched, His mercies did erase.

Each time His purging cleanses deeper, I’m not sure I will survive;

Yet the strength in growing weaker keeps my hungry soul alive.

 

The Refiner’s Fire
Has now become my soul’s desire;
Purged and cleansed and purified,
That the Lord be glorified!
He is consuming my soul;
Refining me, making me whole.
No matter what I may lose
I choose

The Refiner’s Fire!

  1. love that poem/song    thanks for reminding me of it!

  2. Good morning BEG. Thank you for this posting.

  3. I love that song!  Steve Green sings it and it’s one of my favorites, and I will always hear his voice in my head when I sing it.

  4. What a song. I had never heard it before, but I looked it up on Rhapsody and I’m listening to it right now. Whew. I’m always thankful for the results in my life from the fires I’ve already come through, but I HATE the process and I never look forward to the next cleansing. However, it is an awesome thing to be able to look back and see and know how faithful God was through each experience and the way he has mellowed and changed me as a result. Thanks for sharng this wonderful song.

  5. Thank you, Mary Ann, for reminding me of this. Kathy

  6. What a potent word for one in a hot place. Thanks. mw

  7. Nothing that doesn’t simply “go with the territory” ! Ask me in a month or two. πŸ™‚

  8. I know you and I are NOT the only ones that share similar sentiments about the Science Fair.  Get Certain Man on that petition and I’ll have all my multiple personalities sign it!  Heh!   I’m so sorry you had such a dreadful middle of the night episode; it would make me out of sorts too!!!

  9. I chuckled when i read your “blob” about school things and such,, hopefully all parts of the school aren’t so horrible πŸ™‚
