Create my soul anew

if you do not hear the tune, click here.

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!
