Temple Lamps - Lev. 6:13

"The fire must be kept burning on the altar continuously; it must not go out."

Thy kindled fire, Thy Spirit's flame,

The first dawn of God's presence near;

The Sun of Righteousness ascends

Within our hearts, His sacred stair,

Faith's incense of uplifted prayer.

Our hands outstretched, earth's lamplit stars

Shine through the dark-veiled temple door,

Like ancient lamps that burned afar,

Thy ageless flame has kindled near

Within our hearts, before the Lord.
