The flames are rising from my heart
All I have loved is burned away;
And as I see the ashes fly
I send above the tears I cry
I pray that somehow through the flames
The love that blazes bright tonight
Will be a witness to the ages
To those who gaze into its pages;
For I would rather feel the fire
And wear the scars of pain untold
Then stay in safety in the boat
Ill chase the stars and dare the moat;
Within the heat my joys complete,
For God is here, He knows my pain;
Im now a living sacrifice,
Refined through tears, this loves from Christ.
My greatest desire as a poet is to inspire the reader to follow Christ more closely, love more deeply, or experience joy more fully.
