Soul On Fire
Words and Music by: Larry Norman When I was a young boy In a all black neighborhood Where it was rough and tumble in a concrete jungle Hard to do the things you should But I walked straight and narrow And I kept looking higher Because Jesus, He set my soul on fire. When I was a young man Temptation was all around You know when darkness finds you, it slips up behind you And tries to knock you to the ground But I just kept on walking I was so inspired Because Jesus, He set my soul on fire. And then a light from above shone down on my face And lifted me up to a heavenly place I heard the singing of angels on a distant shore And Jesus healed me And brought me back to life once more. Now I am a grown man With a vision locked inside my heart And I speak to men of life and sin and the need to be set apart And I can grow like a lion And I do not tire Because Jesus, He set my soul on fire. Soul on fire, I'm burning up Soul, soul on fire Soul, soul on fire Soul on fire, soul on fire, soul on fire Soul on fire, soul on fire, soul on fire Soul on fire, soul on fire, soul on fire, soul on fire. Jesus set my soul on fire.
