This minuscule spark

This insignificant flame

Please, Divine One, come

Ignite it with Your sacred breath

Let it dance ever higher

These dry and brittle bones

Seek to be rekindled

Into something warm and kind

This, my soul desire

To walk a path straight and true,

To be a blessed reflection

Of all I know of You

All that is decent,

All that is good

Forgive this flawed, imperfect creature

And if it be Your will,

Let me grow quietly in love

Light my way to You
