Oil in my Lamp



This song is an old song I used to sing around the campfire at church camp as a kid.  It just popped in my head the other day and I couldn’t stop singing it! (If you don't know the tune, look it up on you tube, there were a few posts for it... I just couldn't decide which one to post on here, so I thought I would just tell you about them so you could see them all!)

There are a lot of fun verses that can be added on to this song, so I looked them up to see how many I could find.  Oh my goodness!  I had no idea how many there were!

Here it is, I hope you like the step back in time!

Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burning’, burning’, burning
Give me oil in my lamp, I pray, hallelujah!
Give me oil in my lamp, keep me burning’ burning’ burning,
Keep me burning to the break of day!

(chorus)
And I will sing hosanna, sing hosanna, sing hosanna to the King of Kings,
And I will sing hosanna, sing hosanna, sing hosanna to The King!

Give me joy in my heart, keep me praising 
Give me joy in my heart I pray (hallelujah!) 
Give me joy in my heart, keep me praising, praising, praising 
Keep me praising 'til the break of day 


Repeat Chorus 

Make me fishers of men, keep me seeking 
Make me fishers of men I pray (hallelujah!) 
Make me fishers of men, keep me seeking, seeking, seeking 
Keep me seeking 'til the break of day 


Repeat Chorus 

Give me love in my heart, keep me serving 
Give me love in my heart I pray (hallelujah!) 
Give me love in my heart, keep me serving, serving, serving 
Keep me serving 'til the break of day

Repeat Chorus

Hide your word in my heart, keep me learning, learning, learning
Hide your word in my heart, I pray (Hallelujah!)
Hide your word in my heart, keep me learning, learning, learning
Keep me learning ‘til the break of day

Repeat Chorus

Give me peace in my soul, keep me praising, praising, praising
Give me peace in my soul, I pray (Hallelujah!)
Give me peace in my soul, keep me praising, praising, praising
Keep me praising ‘til the break of day

Repeat Chorus


Okay, now here’s where the silly ones begin!

Give me salt for my Fritos
Cause the Lord is really neato
Give me salt for my Fritos, I pray: Hallelujah!
Give me salt for my Fritos
Cause the Lord is really neato
He is neato till the break of day
