"Baptize My Heart" as written by and Misty Edwards....
I can hear the song of the Creator
As He sings over His creation

I played the flute for You
Did You dance?
I sang the wedding song over You
Were You romanced?
I played the funeral song
And told You my judgments were coming
Did you lament?

For even children know when to dance
Even children know the sound of the wedding
Even children know when to repent
At the sound of the funeral they lament
Baptize my heart with Your fire
Your desire

I don't want to be offended
I don't want to be offended
I don't want to be offended
When it's all coming down

I pledge my allegiance to Jesus
I pledge my allegiance to the Lamb

    I can hear the song
    Of the Creator as He sings over His creation:

    I played the flute
    Did you dance?
    I sang the wedding song over you
    Were you romanced?
    I played the funeral song
    Did you lament?
    I told you My judgments were in the land
    But did, did you repent?
    For even children
    Know when to dance!
    And even children know
    When to lament

    I played the flute for you
    Did you dance?
    I sang the wedding song over you
    Were you romanced?
    I played the funeral song
    Did you lament?
    I told you My judgments on the land
    But did you repent?
    Repent, did you repent?
    For even children
    Know when to dance!
    And even children know
    When to lament

    What should I like to do this generation
    My children in the market place
    We sing of the Flame
    The only safe place is in You

    Baptize my heart with Your fire, desire, Jesus
    I don't want to be offended, no
    I don't want to be offended
    I don't want to be offended
    When it's all coming down

    I wanna be for You
    Not against You
    I wanna be with You where You are

    I pledge my allegiance to Jesus, to Jesus
    I pledge my allegiance to the Lamb

    When the nations are rising against You
    The nations
    I wanna be where You are
    Sweet with the wicket
    I wanna be where You are
    -the only safe place-

    Baptize my heart with Your fire,
    Desire, Jesus

    I don't want to be offended, no
    I don't want to be offended
    I don't want to be offended
    When it's all coming down

    I pledge my allegiance to Jesus, to Jesus
    I pledge my allegiance to the Lamb

    We played the flute ...
    You did not dance
    We played the funeral song ...
    You did not lament

    Oh God…
    Teach me how to dance...
    How to lament…
    Show me what You are looking for
    What kind of response You're asking of me
    Oh oh

    Baptize my heart with Your fire, desire, come on

    I don't want to be offended, no
    I don't want to be offended
    I don't want to be offended
    When it's all coming down
    Baptize my heart with Your fire, desire, Jesus

    I don't want to be offended, no
    I don't want to be offended
    I don't want to be offended
    When it's all coming down

    Once again You are going to shake everything that can be shaken
    Jesus desire of the nations
    The only, only safe place is in the center

    I pledge my allegiance to Jesus, to Jesus
    I pledge my allegiance to the Lamb

    From the son of David
    To the Jewish carpenter from Nazareth
    When it is all coming down
    When the nations are rising against Him
    Humm I pledge my allegiance to Jesus Christ of Nazareth
    The Jewish King
    The Son of David
    The Slave Lamb
    Alpha I Know that He is the Magnificent obsession
    And He is the desire of the nations
    To Turn it all around
    Its just a matter of time . . .
    I am going to choose this day to love Him, to serve Him
    I am going to choose this day to clean the hills…….alone
    I pledge my allegiance to Jesus, to Jesus
    I pledge my allegiance to the Lamb
    Is all coming down…

    Once again You can shake everything that can be shaken
    Oh Righteous Judge of the nations
    Beautiful Bridegroom
    Lover of my soul
    Do what you have to do
    Just come
    Come to make the wrong things right
    Come to turn the darkness light
    Turn the world upside down, ‘cause
    There is no peace until You come back

    Jesus until You return
    Return, return, return,
    Return, return, return
    Jesus please come back
    Creation is groaing and waiting, waiting and groaing, groaing and waiting,
    Waiting and groaning, groaning and waiting
    For your return
    You are the only Man of Peace
    That we want
    You are the only King that we cry to come again
    …Return …Jesus come
    …Come again Jesus…
