I want to be tried

by your holy fire,

let it overtake me

until I am purified.

 

Only you alone

can break the shell

around my heart.

It is always well

 

when you are here.

Lord please destroy

what is not your will,

and fill me with joy.

 

Holy Spirit come

into this place,

you are welcomed–

bring your grace.

 

Oh how sweet it is

to be consumed by you

before I met you

my soul was doomed.

 

You did not forsake me.

Clean my hands Lord,

I want to live for you

just like the trees and birds.
