A Fire to the Earth

The searing heat of truth
the burning of the light
as at creation
piercing the darkness
the day dividing the night

A fire to the earth
the coming of our savior
his baptism on the cross
the grave, to rise again

In him alone salvation
our choice to the end
through him alone reconciliation
union with our creator
but our choice too damnation
if we choose the world
rejecting our savior
death evermore
