Wait, waiting for a sign, crying to the sky
For love to come around so hope won't let me down
Shadows carry on, the light is all but gone
Your promise calls to me, a love so rescuing

There is a hope beyond this night
There is a Savior in the sky
Giving His life to set this world on fire

Here, before the flames begin, may passion burn within
Our anthem as we wait, for love to save the day

There is a hope beyond this night
There is a Savior in the sky
Giving his life to set this world on fire

So as the darkness closes in
Know that the sun will shine again
Bringing salvation to a world on fire

As our king you will bring, Your truth, to guide and keep us
All of hell, can not prevail against Your love

May Your light (waiting for a sign)
Take my life (crying to the sky)
Set my heart (for love to come around)
On fire (so hope won't let me down)

There is a hope beyond this life (May Your light)
There is a Savior in the sky (Take my life)
Giving his life to set this world on fire (Set my heart on fire)

So as the darkness closes in
Know that the sun will shine again
Bringing salvation to a world on fire

    General CommentClearly about Faith! This is what I love about their music, the way that it's Christian, but any can enjoy and relate to it.

    But I'm not sure that there is any other way to interpret this song other than proclaiming Faith to the whole world.

    Love it!
