NO OTHER GODS
Speak not too gently, lest I miss
The nuances of what You say.
Seal me to You with burning kiss
That banishes false gods away.
Be fire to my complacent soul,
Lest I should sleep the sleep of death.
With ruthless fingers make me whole,
To vibrate to Your Spirit's breath.
To be one word, to be Your word,
Your utterance to earth's desperate plight;
Your love declared by flesh and blood,.
My soul smoothed to reflect Your light.
