Burn, O Holy One
Burn bright within me
Breathe on the embers of my heart
Ignite a raging inferno, a consuming fire, a blazing torch
That I may love You more
That I may shine Your light
That I may not grow cold with the dust of ashen faith
Let me abandon myself to You
For You have abandoned Yourself for me
Burn up all that is not eternal
For it shall face the Refiner’s fire one day soon
So burn now, O Holy One
Burn bright within me again
