Flame of Love Ever Burning

written by me

Break my bonds with earth
That I might be lifted up to You
As a flame of Your love
Burning as fragrant incense
With love for You,
Almighty One.

A small flame,
A holy flame,
Flying in to Your heart
A Love Offering
Mixed with the fragrance of sweet incense,
Sweet and Holy,
Burning with Love for You,
Oh, Holy One.

A flame in Your sanctuary,
A holy flame
That burns and lights up the night.
Small, but encasing the dark,
Perfumed and filling the night with which You made sacred.

An act of mercy,
An act of love,
An act of Hope
Consumed by Your love.
Burning with desire only for You,
My Lord,
My God,
My All.
