The Fire of His Love

fire-of-god2
 

O come, Holy Fire

all-consuming Love!

Burn Thou within me

till my weary heart

can hold Thee in

  no more.

 

Purify me for I am

but dross before Thee,

Thy radiance blazing forth

from my empty darkness.

 

Glory – O Glory

to Thee,

O hidden Love,

Whose mother Ark

carries Thee

in Thy smallness!

 

Set the earth on fire –

set my heart on fire –

with Thy holy light

in this holy night,

make us all anew!
