This is a fairly intense worship song ;)

In Greek, the word translated as "witness" in Acts is the same word from which we derive the word "martyr".

I want to live, I want to talk
But more than that I want to walk beside you
Not afraid to die, I'm alive in you
I want to seek your heart in everything I do

So make me a witness, a vision, a martyr
Take me home
Fill me up with more than I could ever withstand
Led me over the edge and take me by the hand

Spirit that came crashing down in the beginning live inside me
Build a fire that will spread throughout a dry and thirsty land
Send me to spread it
I'm leaving my old self behind, I die to my desire
Let your angels pick me up, pick me up and throw me in that fire
I need you more an dmore, I want to love you more than I can

"Throw me in that fire"

When I read that line I crack a smile... taken literally, that's a rather bizzare scene :)

Am I the only one who felt this way?
