Set on Fire….

My whole heart I lay upon the altar of thy praise,

an whole burnt offering of praise I offer to thee.

Let the flame of thy love set on fire my whole heart,

let nought be left to myself,

but may I wholly burn towards thee,

wholly be on fire towards thee,

wholly love thee

as though set on fire by thee.

 

Saint Augustine
