I know nothing

 

I know nothing of you, Lord,
Except that you are light;

Please shine upon me every day, 
So I can see your might.

I know nothing of you, Lord,
Except that you are fire;

Consume my sins incessantly,
But shield me from your ire.

I know nothing of you, Lord,
Except that you are peace;

Comfort me in all my woes,
Until my life must cease. 

I know nothing of you, Lord,
Except that you are grace;

Forgive and save me, Father God,
So I may see your face.
