Fire in the water

Fire in the water, fire in the sea,

Once, past time remembered, it covered all, not thee,

All but eight, washed by the ark,

The earth was flooded, now I’m flooded again.

 

Like then like now, baptism, obedience,

We do the illogical,

We trust on obedience,

And follow the command.

 

Like then, like now,

Impossible, come out.

Obedience for forgiveness,

Forgiveness in grace.

 

For Obedience, the pledge, the act of good conscience,

For this, we are saved, disobedience forgotten,

 

Life,

Life,

Life,

 

Life, freedom given back,

 

The freedom, not to sin,

The freedom to obey.

 

Not just the water, no, not the water alone.

Fire in the water,

Burning us free.
