Burn deep and intensely
within my heart!
What is standing tall and proud,
turn to ashes and dust!
Remind my heart, who You are!
It beats and races day and night
“Immortal and strong”
It has thought itself to be,
It couldn’t have been more wrong.
Burn, burn, burn!
Consume the hubris that has blossomed,
like a black rose within this foolish heart!
It has challenged you!
It has accused you!
Thinking itself more intelligent
than you, it’s Creator!
Never stop burning,
Never stop directing,
Never stop speaking,
through your eternal flame
to my Foolish Heart!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
Proverbs 3: 5-6
