A Fire You Can't Put Out

A Fire You Can't Put Out

I seldom got excited growing up,

Each day was the same as the one before.

Except when I got a little pup,

Life was such a bore.

Then Jesus came into my heart,

Built a flame, and there's no doubt.

My Lord and I will never part, 

He built a fire you can't put out.

 Chorus:

 There's a fire within me growin',

Now all I wanna do is shout,

That Jesus you should be knowin',

He built a fire you can't put out.

 

Now life for me is exciting each day,

I see a new blessing He has given me.

Everything is great along life's way,

I see the wonder in a tree.

I'm thankful for the air that I breathe,

I no longer just sit and pout.

He lives in me and I believe, 

He built a fire you can't put out.

 

Now, Jesus can do the same for you,

He holds the match to ignite your flame.

He'll light your fire if you ask Him to.

Just call on Jesus name,

He'll put the spark back in your eyes,

Your cares and fears He will rout.

While others passion fade and dies, 

He'll build a fire you can't put out.
