Light the Fire (McKenna)

This is a gospel-style hymn for Pentecost. 

It was written by Australian classically-trained professional musician, composer and liturgical musician Amanda (Milly) McKenna, and first published in 2008.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by McKenna. Sheet music for this is available for purchase from Willo Publications (link below), and it in the As One Voice Next Generation collection.


Heart emerging from the flames:   Chorus:  Light the fire and burn it deep within. Take us higher into the rushing wind. Open our hearts to your love and let it shine around, And we can share it all around. 1  Listen to the word of God, Listen to the word of God. Hear the Spirit speak of love, Hear the Spirit speak of love. Coming to ignite the fire, Coming to ignite the fire of love! 2  Alleluia is our song, Alleluia is our song. Sing your praises to our God, Sing your praises to our God. Coming to ignite the fire, Coming to ignite the fire of Love!  Bridge:  We can let it shine around, And we can share it all around. Fire! Fire! Light the fire of love!

Chorus
Light the fire and burn it deep within.
Take us higher into the rushing wind.
