Your love kindles my flames of desire,
Yet your touch soothes my ravenous hunger,
Your words lead me from this endless mire,
For your guidance saves me from all danger.
How could I ever live without your grace,
Sick, starved, empty, writhing in life’s coldness,
I’m nothing, a relic time will erase,
Yet you comfort me, cloak me in goodness.
But in the shadow of night unending,
In wretched darkness, our enemies near,
Yet I’ll fight for you, never once yielding,
For when you’re with me I’ll never know fear,
No matter rain and storm, or sleet and hail,
I’ll live all my life for you without fail.
