Leonard Ravenhill

Torch My Heart

Lord engage my heart today
With zeal that will not pass away.
Now torch it with Thy holy fire
That never more shall time's desire
Invade or quench the Heaven born power.
I would be trapped within Thy Holy will,
Thine every holy purpose to fulfill
That every effort of my life shall bring
Rapturous praise to my Eternal King.
I pledge from this day to the grave
To be Thine own unquestioning slave.
                              -Leonard Ravenhill

(The last poem written by Leonard Ravenhill at 2:30 a.m. on February 12, 1994, nine months before he "passed into life.")
