Light the Fire (McKenna)

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!

Light the fire and burn it deep within.
