You inflame my heart above all,
As you save me from one more fall,
For me what is right, good and bright,
Shining in my heart your life light
To drive out hate
I come to you naked in love
For your sweet nectar from above,
To drink deeply
From you like a hungering child,
Now at your bosom free and wild,
