Lyrics:

1. Revive my heart, renew my soul.
In you O Lord, I am made whole.
No more in fear will I wander,
Cause You're my God, my Lord and lover.
Like a burning fire, be my one desire.

Refrain: I want to be holy just like You,
I want to go where you lead me to.
With reckless abandon in Your truth,
I want to fall deeper in love with You.

2. Oh lift me up, God and Father.
In all this world there is no other.
I'm dancing in Your holy presence,
And Your glory fills all my senses.
Like a burning fire, be my one desire.
