keep your lamp burning
tend and nurture the flame
of the Spirit that dwells
deep within you

it will light the way

don’t allow the cares

pay careful attention
watch and wait

for his coming

O Lord, help me to never neglect or ignore the flame within.  It is your very life within me.  Help me, by your grace, to keep my lamp burning, so that your light illuminates my heart, as well as your world.  Amen.
