Andrew Peterson - Carry The Fire Lyrics




I will hold your hand, love
As long as I can, love
Though the powers rise against us
Though your fears assail you
And your body may fail you
There's a fire that burns within us

And we dream in the night
Of a city descending
With the sun in the center
And a peace unending

I will, I will carry the fire
I will, I will carry the fire
Carry the fire for you
I will, I will carry the fire
I will, I will carry the fire
Carry the fire for you

And we kneel in the water
The sons and the daughters
And we hold our hearts before us
And we look to the distance
And raise our resistance
In the face of the forces
Gathered against us

And we dream in the night
Of a king and a kingdom
Where joy writes the songs
And the innocent sing them

I will, I will carry the fire
I will, I will carry the fire
Carry the fire for you

Oh, sing on, sing on
Oh, sing on, sing on
(Light up the darkness)
Oh, sing on, sing on
When your hope is gone
Sing on, sing on

And we dream in the night
Of a feast and a wedding
And the groom in his glory
When the bride is made ready

I will, I will carry the fire
I will, I will carry the fire
Carry the fire for you
I will, I will carry the fire
I will, I will carry the fire
Carry the fire for you

Oh, sing on, sing on
Oh, sing on, sing on
(Light up the darkness)
Oh, sing on, sing on
When your hope is gone
Sing on

Sing on and on and on
On and on and on

    He's an ambassador and gives us a tune to march to.
    We fight the fight of faith so we can look ahead with determination, joy and hope; which gives us the strength for resistance.
    It takes a vision to keep carrying the light, and we do it not only for ourselves but those around us and those we love.

    This is a great video. There is also a beautiful version with just vocals & guitar on the CD- try turning it up in the car... WOW, amazing! Great work Andrew Peterson, one of my favorite songwriters!

    I love the close up of Andrew's feet. Reminds me of a little boy.

    Same here. Wonderful concert!

    (a) Whenever I hear this song, I can't get Will Franklin Chapman's (CALEB) live drumming out of my head from the LFTLB tour. (b) The clip from 1:34-1:39 is my favorite shot of the video!

    Simple and clear video ... Great message!
