Burnin’

Added on by Craig Stewart.

I think sometimes we all hear songs that touch us in some profound way. Burnin’ is one of those for me. It’s Nichole Nordeman’s brilliant song off her 2013 “Wide Eyed” album. On it she sings about her encounter with the refining fire of God. A fire that for Nordeman is very real, raw and personal.

Lyrics:

Started rubbing sticks together
I thought a spark would take forever
I never dreamt this fire would appear

When Moses saw the Bush in flames
And heard the branches speak his name
I wonder if he felt this kind of fear

CHORUS:
‘Cause I’m burnin’
Yeah, I’m burnin’
And I know I’m gonna blister in these flames
So I’ll stay here
‘Till this smoke clears
And I’ll find you in the ashes that remain

Used to be that I could say
My faith was one arm's length away
From any flame that ever felt too warm

Asked for matches, but I received
A gallon full of gasoline
Now my cozy campfire days are gone

CHORUS

‘Knock with caution at the door’ 
They said, ‘Beware of what you're praying for’

So I’ll stand here with my whole desire
In the middle of this forest fire
‘Till I’ve nothing left to show
And new life begins to grow...

CHORUS
