Let me be an offering to you

To move amongst the stars
To fly in the sky of clouds
To dream when awake
To reach far away
To do more
Than what is allowed
To be for being’s sake
I long to be renewed
Gently pray
To find the truth
Let me be a flame
Let me be consumed
Upon an altar to you
Let my ash and scent lift high
Let me be an incense
A beautiful perfume
That brings you joy
That allows me hope
That makes you love anew
That this world can live
Apart from strife
Be redeemed
Be birthed entirely through
The sacrifice of my life
To be an offering to you
