Your Love is Like Fire

In the heavy blackness of this world,

Your love is like fire –

Brilliant flames licking at

Shadowy doorsteps,

Tearing back curtains,

Breaking down walls,

And leaving them in smoking piles.

 

The filth of sin drowns the nations,

But your love is like fire,

It purges the lands;

Replacing bitterness with hope.

 

Through blood and suffering

That fire was ignited;

Nails and spears have pierced,

But death has no hold,

For now You do battle with the darkness,

And illuminate the blackest corners

In Your radiant light.
