On the Altar of Thy Praise

“My whole heart I lay upon the altar of thy praise, an whole burnt-offering of praise I offer to thee. . . .Let the flame of thy love. . .set of fire my whole heart, let nought in me be left to myself, nought wherein I may look to myself, but may I wholly burn towards thee, wholly be on fire toward thee, wholly love thee, as though set on fire by thee.”
Augustine of Hippo, Expositions on the Book of Psalms
