There was a fire within the man

     Who raised the humble, cured the lame –

Who spoke of caring, helped the poor;

      Whose life was good; whose death was shame.

 

There was a fire within the man

     Who comforted the ones who mourned;

Who fed the hungry, loved the poor,

     But who, himself, was sadly scorned.

 

The fire burned brightly in the man

     Who blessed the people pure in heart;

Whose blessings poured on peacemakers;

     Who told us love we should impart.

 

His fire still burns in humankind,

     With flickering flames releasing heat,

And from this fiery, dancing blaze,

     Injustice and contempt retreat.

 

 

* Son of man:  (See: Daniel 7:13-14)
