[Verse 1]
There was an old prophet who dared to take a stand
For the prophets of Baal desecrated their land
Sleeping with the enemy while falling to idolatry
God's chosen people forgot who they were called to be
So Elijah said "If Baal be God, then follow him
But if the Lord, if he be God
Then follow Him"

[Chorus]
I'm sending the fire
I'm sending the flame
I hear the sound of the abundance of rain
For those who would dare to call on my Name
I'm sending the fire, I'm sending the fire

[Verse 2]
So Elijah said, "Now I've had enough
I'm tired of you messing with God's holy stuff
So let's build an altar, prepare a sacrifice
We’re gonna see who is God
We're gonna see who's the Christ
And the God who answers by fire let Him be God
I said, That the God who answers by fire let Him be God"

[Verse 3]
Now just like the prophets of Baal way back then
This generation has fallen into the same kind of sin
The money god, the lust god, the called religion
Allah, Hindu, Buddha, New Age
We can't make a decision
But the God who answers by fire
Let Him be God
I said that the God, who answers by fire
Let Him be God

[Verse 4]
There's an Elijah generation that's rising in this hour
Forerunners for Jesus filled with glory and power
Voices in the wilderness preparing the way
This is the generation that is seeking my face
For I am the God who answers by Fire
I am your God
I am the God who answers by fire
I am your God

[Bridge]
Fire, Fire
We need the Holy Ghost
We need the Holy Ghost
Fire
