The bells are jewel-tones,
coruscating within the chapel walls.

They give voice, uttered inviolate,
then fall silent.

There is no human drama
or thought to connect their space.

Pure singing tones,
that burn as they fade.

"Pure singing tones,
that burn as they fade."

Such depth and meaning in just that little couplet alone, let alone the whole piece. ".. burn as they fade". *Swoon*! You say more than most people can put in page-long poems. Just wonderful...

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

You take a simple theme and find such depth in it.  I think you said the same thing about me once, heh, so now I'm throwing it back at you.  The bells, eh?  I happen to like the sound of church bells, it's so constant and invincible.  You provide a unique perspective here...

Lovely writing Mr Squirrel...

Faith is a fine invention
When gentlemen can see
But microscopes are prudent
In an emergency.
