Breath In My Breast

Ever soft
Softer than smoke
Ever gentle
So is your love
How could I not desire you?
Your Love is like wine
Never shall I fail to need you
Light of my eyes
Breath in my breast
Giver of the morning
Keeper in the night
Show me your secrets
Make me your friend
Light of all Life
Defender of the helpless
Make me like You
Show me your steps
That ever I may walk in them
Reveal yourself here
Let them see You in me
Ever shining
Ever loving all
Even the wicked
Crying out with You
"Father, forgive them!
They know not what they do"
Breath in my breast
Consume me
You are The Consuming Fire

Stephen Pursell, 1/14
