Jesus, Redeemer and my one Inspirer,
Heat in my coldness, set my life aglow.
Break down my barriers; draw, yea, draw me nigher.
Thee would I know, whom it is life to know.
Deepen me, rid me of the superficial;
From pale delusion set my spirit free;
All the entangled in me quick unravel;
Pluck forth each thread of insincerity.
The vows are on me, oh to serve Thee truly —
Love perfectly, in purity obey —
Burn, burn, O Fire, O Wind, now winnow throughly;
O Sword, awake against the flesh and slay.
