  • Lyrics: Once More Formed from the dust … ash… altar Forged in the flame… funeral fire Sanctified though I stumble & falter. Reborn in the heat of His blazing desire… I will rise like the phoenix to fly once more, On brave new wings that reach and soar. And I’ll find what I was created for Once more. Once more. Shaped from the midst … ash … altar Purged in the pain of this burial pyre. Purified though I stagger and falter. Reborn in the zeal of His raging desire… Melting my heart Searing my soul Touching my lips w/ His burning coal He purifies And leaves me whole Once more. Once more. I will rise like the phoenix to fly once more, No captive bird bound as before. And I’ll live what I was intended for Once more. Once more. c 2007 Cool Spirit Publishing (ASCAP)
