Light My Lamp

Oh Lord, light my lamp and fuel the flame
Mark my soul, imprint your name;
Watch over me in the darkest of nights
Illumine my path with Your marvelous light.

Like the bush that burned on the holy mount
Like the rock that flowed as a holy fount,
Touch my soul with your heavenly power
Increase Your glory hour by hour.

Only You know the way, my steps to guide;
Only You know the Truth, my mind to decide;
Only You have the life spark of eternal bliss;
Light my lamp with a heavenly kiss.

Refill my vessel with the Comforter’s oil,
An unlimited supply never to spoil,
Continually aflame with Your holy fire,
Totally consuming my heart’s desires.

Set me ablaze, like a torch in your hand,
As a beacon of prayer in this darkened land
To blow on the embers nearly dead and cold
Turning iron into silver and brass into gold.

I give You my lamp, my heart eager to learn,
Into Your care forever to burn
Light my lamp, trim my wick with not much ado
I am only complete living in YOU.
