Create my soul anew
if you do not hear the tune, click
Create my soul anew,
else all my worship's vain.
This wretched heart will never prove true
till it be formed again.
Descend, celestial Fire,
and seize me from above!
Wrap me in flames of pure desire,
a sacrifice to love.
Let joy and worship spend
the remnant of my days,
and to my God my soul ascend
in sweet perfumes of praise!
