Love through me, Love of God;
There is no love in me.
O Fire of love, light Thou the love
That burns perpetually.
Flow through me, Peace of God;
Calm River, flow until
No wind can blow, no current stir
A ripple of self-will.
Shine through me, Joy of God;
Make me like Thy clear air
That Thou dost pour Thy colors through,
As though it were not there
O blessed Love of God,
That all may taste and see
How good Thou art, once more I pray:
Love through me—even me.
~ Amy Carmichael
Beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
That is beautiful. I especially like the second verse.
What a beautiful poem! Do you know if it has ever been set to music? I just watched a children’s video on Amy Carmichael last week! Thanks for sharing at the #LMMLinkup.
I haven’t heard it set to music, but it would be great if someone did that.

Oh, this is marvelous. I heard it at a conference last week where the speaker was talking about being filled with the Spirit. I’d like to ask if I need permission to use it in the prayers for holiness in my new Pursuing Holiness Bible study at http://www.40daysofholiness.com.
I’m not sure whether permission would be needed. I believe the copyright to her writings is held by The Dohnavur Fellowship–http://dohnavurfellowship.org/. perhaps you could contact them and ask.
