This raging flame

Deep in my bones a fire burns, shut up within and I am weary from holding it.  This raging flame, many waters cannot quench. Just grant me Lord this day, a voice— not barred; give me the freedom.  To lift it up without shame.  Make true again the promise of a dream so long denied.  Brokenhearted— to them you are near, and you save the crushed in spirit.  From thy heavenly wells, we drink; fill till we overflow.  Our soul— to you, we lift it up.  Make bright its depths, with the light of your face.
