Story

Words and Music by Mark Baldwin and Peter Carlson, originally performed by Glad on the 1987 album "Who Do You Love"

A really good summation and wrap-up to the "This Burning Bush" album. "...and that fire that burned before them so long ago, is now burning in our hearts!"

I've always been a big fan of 1980's Christian music, and this original song by Glad is a premier example.  I hope I've done it justice.

Lyrics

In the desert in the middle of the night
Right before their eyes - a fire
Beacon to their chosen one - their precious guiding light
Holy fire, burning brighter, holy fire

And that fire is the flame of the Lord
Cutting through us with a two-edged sword
Telling us again and again just who we are
And that flame that burned before them so long ago
Is now burning in our hearts

Holy fire, burning brighter
Holy fire, burning brighter

A sign to all of Israel, he will never let them go
Holy fire
With the promise that would soon be soon
He will lead them to their home

Holy fire, burning brighter
Holy fire, burning brighter

And that fire is the flame of the Lord
Cutting through us like a two-edged sword
Tell us again and again just who we are
And that flame that burned before them so long ago
Is now burning in our hearts

Holy fire, burning brighter
Holy fire, burning brighter

Spirit of the Living God
Maker of the hearts of men
In His wisdom and His ageless heart
Has placed His fire within

And the fire is the flame of the Lord
Cutting through us with a two-edged sword
Telling us again and again just who we are
And that flame that burned before them so long ago
Is now burning in our hearts

Holy fire, burning brighter
Holy fire, burning brighter
