The Fire Still Falls

by Melinda Poitras

We say, “People don’t want God.
People don’t care.
We try and we try;
They don’t notice we’re there!”

We stand fast in God’s compassion,
And the love He came to prove;
Yet fall short of believing
That He can still move.

Arise, oh believer!
Lift up your head.
The voice of truth calls you.
God is not dead!

People are searching;
Won’t you show the way?
Remember to love them;
Remember to pray.

For across the great distance
God still softly calls.
The war is still raging.
The fire still falls.
