By Melissa McLaughlin

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 Refinerโ€™s fire one day soon

So burn now, O Holy One

Burn bright within me again
