Catch Fire
 
A:       Catch fire, waitin' for the Spirit,
          Catch fire, waitin' for the wind,
          Catch fire, waitin' for the power
          Jesus promised God would send.
 
B:       God will send the Spirit here,
          Tongues of fire will soon appear.
          Then we'll go forth to share
          Good news of Jesus ev'rywhere.
 
C:       On fire, movin' with the Spirit
          On fire, movin' with the wind.
          On fire, catch the Spirit's power
          We had faith that God would send.
 
CODA:
          On fire,
          On fire,
          We go forth for God…. Catch fire!
