Send Down the Fire
Send down the fire of Your justice,
Send down the rainse of Your love,
Come, send down the Spirit,
Breathe life in your people, and
We shall be people of God.

Teach us the song of Your love;
Give us hearts that sing,
Give us deeds that ring,
Make us ring with
the song of Your love.

Teach us the way of Yourpeace;
Give us hearts that feel,
Give us hands that heal,
Make us walk in
the way of Your peace.
3. Call us to answer oppression,
Teach us the fire of Your trugh;
Give us righteous souls,
‘Til Your justice rolls,
Make us burn with
the fire of Your love.

Give us the presence of Christ;
May Your holy light
Keep us shining bright,
Ever shine with
the presence of Christ.
