I want to love
I want to love in this burning heart.
For you I want
To long, come and remain apart.
In each dark sound
I want to hear your tender voice
And lie so soft
In Your love’s all-sheltering embrace.
I want to breathe
Free and enlivened and so new
That e’en in dark
The burning deep may rise from ash to you.
So come to me
And kiss a hearts too wounded beat
That I may see
And encompassed within Your own safety keep.
