Consumed By The Living Flame
"Our God is a consuming fire."
"They said to each other, 'Did
hearts burn within us while he talked
us on the road, while he opened to
My Candle Burns
My heart's a candle that's melting ;
Consumed within the Living Flame.
What's cold and hard is softening;
Once melted, it's never the same.
The Flame consumes impurity,
Transforming it into Love's light:
What was lost in obscurity,
Now shines the Truth; defying night.
The Flame centers about the wick:
This common thread remains God's will.
The constant burn is not a trick;
Centered on Love, I have my fill.
O Living Flame! Cease not Your burn.
Your melting Love is what I yearn!
