No Vacancy

No Vacancy

There used to be no vacancy

When zeal for God yet burned

But entered in complacency

Few hearts for God now yearn

We fill our inner passages

With much of worldly fare

Along with evil’s images

Grown harder now to care

Before the smoldering wick shall fail

God’s Spirit blows again

To fan a flame that shall prevail

And vanquish growing sin

Pain shall be the instrument

The Lord shall use to cut

This last resort of implements

For His people in their rut

Many hearts His love will pierce

From God’s great jealousy

Because His love’s intensely fierce

His church must be set free
