Rise with Fire

(Reclaiming & Friends)

We can rise with the fire of freedom.
Truth is the fire that burns our chains.
And we can stop the fire of destruction.
Healing is the fire running through our veins.

LISTEN

#1028 The Fire of Commitment

From the light of days remembered burns a beacon bright and clear;
Guiding hands and hearts and spirits into faith set free from fear.

Chorus:

When the fire of commitment sets our mind and soul ablaze;
when our hunger and our passion meet to call us on our way;
when we live with deep assurance of the faith that burns within;
then our promise finds fulfillment and our future can begin.

From the stories of our living rings a song both brave and free;
Calling pilgrims still to witness to the life of liberty;

Repeat chorus

From the dreams of youthful vision comes a new, prophetic voice;
Which demands a deepeer justice built by our courageous choice.

Repeat chorus

LISTEN:

We Are a Ring of Fire

We are a ring of fire.
We are becoming family.
We will dance and sing.
and drum and serve all night long.

In the morning, we will see
the greatest fire of them all.
We are transforming now.
We have become community.

You are the Fire

(Gaiella)

You are the fire. You are the flame.
Sharing your love, you burn so brightly.

I am the fire. I am the flame,
Sharing my love, I burn so brightly.

Fire burns in you. Fire burns in me.
Fire burns in you. Fire burns in me.

Fire Transforms Us

Bring us to our passions!
We choose life – YES!

We choose life – YES!
We choose courage
To dance among the flames
To dance among the flames
