Burning Torch

Lord, Jesus Christ, Sun of Justice,
enlighten and set fire to my heart,
so that my footsteps may be like
the morning light that walks and grows
toward the fullness of the day.

O Savior of all, may I always be
burning with great love of You,
so that I may enkindle others.

May I be a torch that blazes
and illuminates!

Lord Jesus Christ, receive my life
and everything I possess.
Here I am, send me!
Show me the path
so that I may lead others to You
and through Your grace bring them all
to salvation.

O Savior of the world!
O Savior of all humankind!
Be our Savior!
