I offer You the straw of my life, O w fuel the fire of Your Love.
Did You not say, ”Learn from Me, For I am meek, And humble of heart?” You do not need my riches. You seek my poverty, my emptiness.
Your Fire penetrates my stubble. I become like You, All aglow As light and heat Testify to Your Presence in the flame That shoots to the heavens.
I am surrender and trust In welcome transformation. I am lost and yet eternal. In You, straw by straw, As kindling, I am become the flame.
