I could tell you that I am your hero -
That I fight to save your lives.
I could tell you I climb tall ladders,
Just to aim and put out the flames.
Oh yes, and I could tell you I rescue your children -
And carry firemen out of the fires.
But that is not what I do -
Yet I am a fire-fighter - you may even know me well.
Deep inside is a burning - such an unquenchable fire -
And I fight to put that fire out - but this one must always burn.
The yearning, longing...oh the desire to follow Him -
I often douse with self indulgences, and the flames almost die out.
I put away the food this fire needs to send it skyhigh -
And I whisper just a word or two, just enough to keep it alive....
I am a lowly fire-fighter with many a good intention -
But that won't keep my fire alight nor set other fires ablaze.
