"Do You See The Fire?," a Parody Song Based on Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire"

I was a bit inspired by Jimmy Fallon's Avengers version of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start The Fire." So, I wrote and recorded new lyrics to it, regarding American church history over the past century. It's entitled "Do You See The Fire?," Lyric video courtesy of Phil Christensen of Standing Stone Ministry. Chord chart is available in the Free Song section near the bottom of our Music page. It might work well at a seminary graduation, church plant training event or a ministry leader orientation. I know it's a fun song, but don't forget to ponder the lyrics to the chorus:

Do you see the fire?

It was always burning since the world’s been turning

Do you see the fire?

Yeah, we helped to light it, now we need to fight it

P.S. I had a very bad throat when I recorded the vocals.
