a hymn

This hymn of the 17th cent. St., Dimitrii of Rostov struck me today.

Come, my Light, and illumine my darkness.

Come my Life, and revive me from death.

Come, my Physician, and heal my wounds.

Come, Flame of Divine Love,

and burn up the thorns of my misdeeds,

kindling my heart with the flame of your love.

Come, My God, sit upon the throne of my heart and reign there.
You alone are my God and my Lord.” amen. May it be.
