Contentment is not a peak

That comes in fits and bursts

Steady flame, warmth of glow

Emits a smile where ‘ere you go

When fuel is added unaware

Flame can leap, dance and flare

Rapture’s sudden upward highs

Are due when sacred words arise

To contemplate on He alone

To feast on great nectar’s joy

To call Him in intimate ways

To raise a song of hearty praise

All these serve to safely guard

Against the influx worldly tales

That enter openings like thieves

And steal away what heart believes


O Lord light Thy burning flame of devotion; my heart yearns to be lit; let the fuel be Thy sacred name, the air be Thy songs of praise; the warmth be Thy glory; may my lips deliver sweet and intimate words; may my eyes be fixed on Thee and only turn away to make loving glances to Thee.
