Sara Groves - Jeremiah Lyrics




Jeremiah, tell me about the fire
That burns up in Your bones
I want to know, I want to know more now
The burning of ambition and desire
It never could come close
To that fire, to that fire

I was looking to myself
And I forgot the power of God
I was standing with a sparkler in my hand
While I stood so proud and profound
You came and burned this whole place down
Now that's a fire

Jeremiah, tell me about the fire
That burns up in Your bones
I want to know, I want to know more now
The burning of ambition and desire
It never could come close
To that fire, to that fire

And I was caught up in this vice
And its power to entice
I was dwelling on my hopelessness and doubt
With the slightest invitation
You came with total detonation
Now that's a fire

Jeremiah, tell me about the fire
That burns up in Your bones
I want to know, I want to know more now
Jeremiah, tell me about the fire
'Cause nothing could come close
To that fire, to that fire
Jeremiah

And I was warming my hands by this little light of mine
But now I know, I know it's time
To come in from the cold
Fight fire with fire and fan the flame
Come stir up these coals in my soul, in my soul
Till it burns out of control

Jeremiah, tell me about the fire
That burns up in Your bones
I want to know, I want to know more now
Jeremiah, tell me about the fire
'Cause nothing could come close
To that fire, to that fire
Jeremiah

That's a fire
Jeremiah
It's a fire

And I was warming my hands by this little light of mine
But now I know, I know, I know it's time
To come in from the cold
Come in from the cold
Stir up in my bones, stir up in my bones
Stir up in my bones

Evil, will you stir up in my bones?
I was looking to myself, I was looking to myself
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

    Loved this song as a kid but didn't fully understand the context. I'm almost done reading Jeremiah and now that I know his story, this song is even more powerful

    Great song, haunting lyrics and such.   Just add techno so I could run marathons to your God inspired lyrics.  Thanks again Sarah.
