HOT LAVA LOVE

Mighty volcano of infinite love
great billows and streams
flow down the banks of who You are
on everyone
everywhere
wrecking us for the darkness with
Your brilliant passion

Who can stand
in the presence of such love
a love that
will not be denied
can not be quenched

There's no need to appease this
angry fire god
with the life of
my virginity

His mouth isn't filled with vengeful hatred
but longing
the bright red flow isn't flaming hell
but redemption's desire

Freedom's gate bids me come

Gladly I cast
the death of my adultery into
the liberating grace of Your
all consuming life
