Lyrics

Part 1 (low):
This fire is the fire of love and compassion, this fire is the fire of kindness and gratitude.

Part 2 (middle):
Burning away everything that stands in the way of love.

Part 3: (high)
This fire is purification, this fire is healing the nations, this fire, this fire is love.

Teaching Notes

I love teaching this high-energy layer song and it works as a great closer. The final part is the wordiest and takes the longest to learn, so make sure the high singers have a good grasp on it before putting all the parts together.

This recording is in A. Laurence’s original sheet music is in B flat.

Level of teaching speed/ difficulty (1 = very easy, 10 = very challenging)
