Burning Altars by Jesutomiwo Adebumowa

Burning Altars by Jesutomiwo Adebumowa
We raise the woods
As the axe falls onto it
It is not our choice.

But to Him who we please

We arrange the stones
With hands that have had untold
Mysteries of old; not unto us

But to Him who we please

We place the folds of direct
Fire tones. Keeping it erect
So as it burns
It burns direct

The woods are our lives
Basic necessity for the sacrifice
The axe that falls onto it
is His will breaking down ours
It is not our choice

But to Him who we please

The stones, our submission
The ones we arrange with the hearts of our
Soul
The Spirit, that have had untold
Mysteries of old
Not unto us

But to Him who we please.

What then are the folds
The folds of direct fire tones
The folds we keep erect
Erect as it burns
Burning direct.

The folds of the fire tone
Is our burning spirit
Aflame with the love of God
The synonymous act for His suffering
Which we keep erect
Standing in His spirit
As it burns direct.

We are His altars
Body, Soul, Spirit
Wood, Stone, Fire
On this we lay your sacrifice
A sacrifice of meet
A sacrifice of meet
Till we sit at His feet.
