But my love is frost and cold, ice and snow;
Let His love warm me,
lighten my burden,
be my heaven;
May it be more revealed to me in all its influences
that my love to Him might be more fervent and glowing;
Let the mighty tide of His everlasting love
cover to rocks of my sin and care;
Then let my spirit float above those things
which had else wrecked my life.
Make me more fruitful by living to that love,
my character becoming more beautiful every day.
If traces of Christ’s love-artistry be upon me,
may he work upon me with his divine brush
until the complete image be obtained
and I be made a complete image of him, my master.
