Great Tongues of Fire
Parody of "Great Balls of Fire" by Jerry Lee Lewis
(Acts 2:1-21, 4:23-31; Joel 2:28-31)

You shook the church as we sat and were prayin'
Your rushing wind had the men in flames
You showed Your will -- and got us filled
With goodness, grace, and great tongues of fire

They laugh at us 'cause we're talkin' real funny
They say we've all been boozin' honey
I drank no wine -- it was a sign
Goodness, grace, and great tongues of fire

This is crazy
Mmmmmm -- feels good
Joel explains it
Well, the one who prophesied that understood
We'll find -- those lines
In Joel 2:28 and 29, 9, 9, 9

You soothed my nerves and then You freed up my tongue
I feel fervent -- but I sure ain't drunk
I'm not crazy -- but Christ has saved me
Goodness, grace, and great tongues of fire

LEAD

Wellllllll
This is crazy
Mmmmmm -- feels good
Holy bravery
Well, I want to multiply the brotherhood
Your signs -- show it's time
Got to tell this world You're divine, vine, vine, vine

I will not fail with Your Word on my tongue
We're unlearned -- but we sure ain't dumb
I'm not crazy -- but Christ has saved me
Goodness, grace, and great tongues of fire

Acts 2:3
They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on
each of them.
