Your precious Spirit is light and flame within me,
help me to tend your fire within,
with words of praise and thanksgiving.
Set a coal upon my lips,
forgive me for my grumbling and complaining,
sear away the lies I’ve spoken
in unbelief and discouragement.
No longer will I tolerate this bondage of my construction,
I stand firm in your truth, wielding my sword,
I’ll praise my way in faith
through the world’s darkness and confusion
following my Shepherd’s voice,
I’ll speak forth your beauty, love, and righteousness.
Let me shine like a star in this generation,
for your Name and glory alone.
Come quickly Lord,
