There were three before the king
There were three who wouldn't bow to him
For when you heard the music play
And you were standing, you would burn
They looked at him and said...

Burn us up, burn us up, burn us up
Oh, king won't you burn us
In the furnace of your desire
We give up, we give up, we give up
Oh, king won't you burn us
In the furnace of your desire
Oh won't you throw us in the fire

The king, enraged at what they said,
Sent the three away to find their death
The palace stopped in unbelief
When the guilty raised their hands to sing
They looked to him and said...

Burn us up, burn us up, burn us up
Oh, king won't you burn us
In the furnace of your desire
We give up, we give up, we give up
Oh, king won't you burn us
In the furnace of your desire
Oh won't you save us from the fire

You are able to deliver
From the fire of affliction
It's the declaration of my Lord
You're not an image of gold
You're the God of Old
You have made us, come and save us We are yours
But even if you don't, we will burn
We will burn

Burn us up, burn us up, burn us up
Oh, king won't you burn us
In the furnace of your desire
We give up, we give up, we give up
Oh, king won't you burn us
In the furnace of your desire
Oh won't you throw us in the fire
