Lyrics

Behold the mi­ra­cle re­newed!
Whom faith di­vine i­nspires,
We walk with Christ the Son of God
And praise Him in the fires:
Kept by His pre­sence and His name,
Who earth and hell su­bdued,
We quench the vi­ol­ence of the flame,
Thro’ our Re­deem­er’s blood.

Tempted and per­se­cuted here,
Afflicted and dis­tressed,
With stead­fast faith we per­severe,
And stand the fie­ry test:
The fire shall all our bands con­sume,
And in the fur­nace tried,
Out of the flames we soon shall come
Unhurt and pu­ri­fied.
