Lyrics

Flame of Love

O living flame of love who tenderly wounds me so

Within the deepest centre of my soul

Complete your work my love and

Tear now the veil that keeps our hearts from being one

So gently lover wake within my heart where

secretly you dwell alone,

and with your breathing sweet, full of grace and glory

tenderly now swell my heart with love

O tender night releasing my heart from every chain,

my eyes from all that hides my lover’s gaze

Bereft of sight and feeling, my only light is now the hidden flame of love

So let the earth be shaken, let the heavens fall and

Let the rain come down and tempest blow

My life is hidden in you; you are alive in me

and you are all I need

So gently lover, wake within my heart where

secretly you dwell alone,

and with your breathing sweet, full of grace and glory

tenderly now swell my heart with love
