nothing else

i am lost
to one passion, tossed
towards You, unquenchable, irresistible Flame;
brand me, seal me indelibly with your Name –
i shun no cost

nothing else in life i seek
than to lay my love down at Your feet

i keep still
before Your fire, kill
what you have to kill, burn away the dross,
i will cling to You, cleave to You, mind no loss –
have Your will

nothing else in life i seek
than to lay my life down at Your feet

i am found
with You, at Your feet on the ground,
wholly rapt by the sound of Your beautiful voice,
by untearable ties of love's willing choice
forever bound

nothing else in life i seek
than to lay myself down at Your feet
