David Leonard Calls Us to Return to Our First Love with "Light a Fire"

David Leonard

GRAMMY®-nominated and GMA Dove Award-winning David Leonard has released his brand new single "Light a Fire." The song is Leonard's heart's cry for himself and the church to return to our first love in Jesus Christ. 

Leonard explains, "This song has been my prayer over the last few months - God, renew me. Bring me back to the beginning. 
This song has become my prayer for the Church. God, we need You to wake us up, light a fire in us that nothing can burn out." 

Restore to me the joy of my salvation
Take me back to where it all began
Where all I ever wanted was Your presence
How I long to be there once again

Light a fire that the world can't burn out
Fan the flame till nothing between us remains
Oh, my life is an alter to You
Breathe again on the embers that burn In my heart
A love taken back to the star
