The Rev. Alexis Easton, pastor of Brentwood United Methodist Church – inspired by the "Catch Fire" movement – has written a song for Pentecost which she wishes to share with other churches in the California-Nevada Annual Conference.
It is suitable for a children's choir as well as performance by an adult choir and for congregational singing.
The lyrics are copied below. Download sheet music here.

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.
We go forth for God…. Catch fire!
