MAKE ME THY FUEL, O FLAME OF GOD !

This is simply one of the most powerful poems ever written in the English language, ... or ANY language for that matter. It's a gem that is truly worth memorizing. GOD GIVE US THE GRACE TO LIVE THIS POEM ! . . .

From prayer that asks that I may be

Sheltered from winds that beat on Thee,

From fearing when I should aspire,

From faltering when I should climb higher

From silken self, O Captain, free

Thy soldier who would follow Thee.
=============================

From subtle love of softening things,

From easy choices, weakenings,

(Not thus are spirits fortified,

Not this way went the Crucified)

From all that dims Thy Calvary

O Lamb of God, deliver me.
========================

Give me the love that leads the way,

The faith that nothing can dismay

The hope no disappointments tire,

The passion that will burn like fire;

Let me not sink to be a clod;

Make me Thy fuel, O Flame of God.

~Amy Wilson Carmichael
