Set Me Aflame (Psalm)

Lord, set me aflame for You.
let not my fire grow dim.
keep my flame from the quenchers.

the cares of the world press me into the ground

the spiritual rain that comes not from You

crackles and pops on the embers of my heart

make my soul so hot that the waters from the world

turn to steams of praise rising to Your Name.

may my life burn as a living sacrifice for You

shining Your light throughout the earth
