Need lyrics for I rise up to worship I stand to proclaim

Post by steveliu » Sun Jul 20, 2008 12:54 pm

Here are the lyrics to a song called "Make me a chariot of fire" that I found on a couple sites.

I rise to worship, I stand to acclaim;
the King of all glory, Christ Jesus His Name.

I ask you, Lord Jesus, fulfull this desire;
Ignite me and make me a chariot of fire.

Come ride on my life, Lord Jesus Christ;
My King and my master, come ride on my life
To this one goal I wholly aspire

Come rule in my heart, Lord Jesus Christ;
My King and my master, come ride on my life
And I will be a chariot of fire.

The music, of course, was composed by Vangelis for the 1981 film "Chariots of Fire". Based on the wording and the lack of many sources about this hymn, I'd guess these are probably lyrics that were "home-grown", and then spread around to different churches and worship groups.

God bless!

Hi Steve. Thanks for posting the words. A little history. Right after the film came out my wife and I attended a Christian camp where Pastor Jack Hayford was giving a week long teaching along with another Pastor who was a friend, Rick Howard. Pastor Hayford had seen the movie and inspired by that wrote these words. A few months later Rick Howard told us that Jack had asked permission from the copyright holders of Vangelis to use the tune and it was rejected so he asked that his words not be used due to copyright infringement. However, my wife and I still sing the lyrics in our hearts.
God bless!

I rise to worship, I stand to proclaim;
the God of all glory, Christ Jesus His Name.

I ask you, Lord Jesus, fulfull my desire;
Ignite me and make me your chariot of fire.

Come reign in my life, Lord Jesus Christ;
Oh God of most high, come reign in my life
and i will be your chariot of fire

I know this is an old thread but I wanted to share how I learned it.


I rise up to worship, I stand to acclaim;
the King of all ages, Christ Jesus His Name.

I ask you, King Jesus, fulfill this desire;
Ignite me and make me a chariot of fire.

Come rule all my life, Lord Jesus Christ;
Be Master and King. Come rule all my life
Lord Jesus Christ, be my everything.

Come rule in my heart, Lord Jesus Christ;
Be Master and King. Come rule in my heart
Lord Jesus Christ, be my everything.

Just stumbled across this whilst looking for the official lyrics as I sung this in school. Apparently there aren't any.
I was taught.

I rise up to worship. I stand to acclaim.
The king of all ages, Christ Jesus his name.

I ask you Lord Jesus, fulfil this desire;
Ignite me and make me, a chariot of fire.

Come rule all my life, Lord Jesus Christ;
Be master and king.
Come rule all my life Lord Jesus Christ;
Be my everything.

Come rule all my life Lord Jesus Christ;
My Master. My King.
Come rule all my life Lord Jesus Christ;
Be my everything.

Then we would repeat it through once more, then sing

I rise up to worship. I stand to acclaim.
The king of all ages, Christ Jesus his name.

I ask you Lord Jesus, fulfil this desire;
Ignite me and make me, a chariot of fire
a chariot of fire
a chariot of fire.
