Tune Me, O Lord

Tune me, O Lord, into one harmony
     With Thee, one full responsive vibrant chord;
Unto Thy praise all love and melody,
     Tune me, O Lord.

     Thus need I flee nor death, nor fire, no sword:
A little while these be, then cease to be,
     And sent by Thee not these should be abhorred.

Devil and world, gird me with strength to flee,
     To flee the flesh, and arm me with Thy word:
As Thy Heart is to my heart, unto Thee
     Tune me, O Lord.

~Christina Rossetti
