Don't Light Your Own Fire

from the album "Daniel Amos"

Words and Music Terry Scott Taylor
1976 Maranatha! Music
I feel the darkness falling all around me now
It's very hard to find the room to breathe
I want so desperately to find my own way
But Jesus comes to set my mind at ease
When He says

"Don't light your own fire"
"Don't light your own fire"
"Don't light your own fire"

Seems I don't know which way to turn
to the left or to the right
I want to strike the match, I'm gonna watch the fire burn
But then His voice pierces the night
when He says

"Don't light your own fire"
"Don't light your own fire"
"Don't light your own fire"

You wouldn't believe the change it's makin' in my heart
'Cause when I'm weak He is so strong
And at the end of the night a new day must arrive
So to you, I pass this on

"Don't light your own fire"
"Don't light your own fire"
"Don't light your own fire"
