I am not a fire-starter,
Called by some a ďfire bug,Ē
But I am a fire-fighter;
Iím a human fireplug.
I donít fight fires actual,
But the fires of the heart
Like the flames of pride and envy
That are sent by Satanís dart.
I stifle hateful words to say
From anger thatís aflame;
I call for help to fight the fire
In Jesusí precious name.
A fire-keeper am I, too,
To stoke the embers glowing
Of joy and peace and thankfulness
That in my heart are growing.
By prayer and Bible study,
My heartís spark is getting stronger
Till deeds of kindness will appear
And my patience will last longer.
My life becomes a candle
Where the little light will grow
Till others all around me
Then my Saviorís love will know.
But whether fire-fighter,
Fire-keeper might I be,
I do not do my work alone;
God in Spiritís guiding me.
