Keeper of the Flame

Keeper of my heart
Keeper of your name
Keeper of the fire that burns,
Oh keeper of the flame

Oh eternal fire
And Holy passion that you are
Let this flame of holy love
Burn deep within my heart

More love for you, more love
Oh keeper of the flame
Human love is not enough
To bear your Holy name

I must be filled with love divine
That keeps me night and day
When I feel your presence near
Or when it seems you’re far away

Oh consuming fire
that purges and that fills
Burning up all other loves
‘Til you become my will

When the embers are burning low
And if they seem to wane
Breathe upon them with your breath
That they may burn again

Keeper of my heart
Keeper of your name
Keeper of the fire that burns
Oh keeper of the flame
