GOD’S TURTLEDOVE


    Heaven surrounds her, the babe is asleep,
She’s wrapped in the warmth of God’s love,
Angels throng round her, vigil they keep,
Over His pure Turtledove.

Earth jubilates with all of creation,
No cloud mars the azure blue sky,
Blest will she be, in each generation,
Chaste all her virginal life.

Created by God, in flawless perfection,
Peerless the soul of this child,
Saved and redeemed by the Cross of salvation,
She’ll know naught of sorrow awhile.

Veiled to the world is God’s little treasure,
Born in a place of no worth,
Conceived full of grace, beyond every measure,
For a Work that will later unfurl.

There’ll be a betrothal, she will be espoused,
She’ll coact* with the Triune God,
Satan’s atremble, hell’s dread is aroused
For she will give flesh to her Lord.

Her fiat will grant her unique dispensations,
She will give a Body to God,
She’ll bear in her womb the Light of all Nations,
Yet a sword will pierce thru’ her heart.

LET LOVE CONSPIRE



Breathe in me - kindle desire,
Purify with holy fire,
That I to godliness aspire,
O Trinity as One conspire.

Fill my heart with endless praise,
Keep me in His abiding grace,
Nestled in the warm embrace,
Of Him who is my hiding place.

Grant that He be my delight,
Guard the flame so it stays bright,
Keep the flickering wick alight,
My ardor spur with mercy's might.

CATCHING FIRE

I will ask the Father
and he will give you another Advocate
to be with you always. Jn 14:16


I asked of my Beloved,
To send from heaven above,
His All-Consuming Spirit,
Inflaming me with Love.

A Blazing Light whose burnish,
Would neither cool nor dim,
To brand His Seal upon my soul,
Claiming me for Him.

Would my loving, gracious Lord,
Ignite at my request,
The Fire of His Spirit
In me, at my behest?

He answers every prayer 
and often, just as we desire,
His flaming arrow torched my soul,
His not mine the Fire.
