(+Lyrics + meaning + translation) Music Review- Another in the Fire by Hillsong United

Another in the fire is a song by Hillsong United. The band is currently signed to Capitol Christian Music Group (CCMG.)

What is the song Another in the Fire by Hillsong United all about?

“Another in the fire,”is a reference to the bible passage in Daniel 3. It tells the story of three Hebrew men- Abednego, Shadrach, and Meshach.

The three refused to bow to the graven image of the Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar. This angered the king, who asked some soldiers to throw them into a fiery furnace. It was so hot that the flames of the fire killed the soldiers while nothing happened to the trio.

But Jesus sent his angel “(Another in the fire) ” to rescue them in the furnace. Nebuchadnezzar was dazed when he saw four men come out of the fire unharmed.

Hence, the song is an assurance to all believers that all will be well for them no matter the difficulty they are going through. The artists assure all of God’s presence in every situation they are facing.

The artists charge people not to be downcast but to hold on to the faith they have in God in rough times because God will always come through for them. “You are never alone,” God is with you.

Hillsong United also talked about God’s death that already freed us from sin.

Lyrics to Another in the Fire by Hillsong United 

Intro

Instrumentals

Verse 1

There’s a grace when the heart is under fire  

Another way when the walls are closing in  

And when I look at the space between  

Where I used to be and this reckoning 

I know I will never be alone 

Chorus

There was another in the fire  

Standing next to me 

There was another in the waters  

Holding back the seas 

And should I ever need reminding 

Of how I’ve been set free 

There is a cross that bears the burden  

Where another died for me 

There is another in the fire 

Verse 2

All my debt left for dead beneath the waters  

I’m no longer a slave to my sin anymore  

And should I fall in the space between  

What remains of me and this reckoning  

Either way, I won’t bow 

To the things of this world 

(And I know) I know I will never be alone 

Chorus 

There is another in the fire  

Standing next to me 

There is another in the waters  

Holding back the seas 

And should I ever need reminding  

What power set me free 

There is a grave that holds nobody  

And now that power lives in me 

Hook

There is another in the fire oh oh

There is another in the fire oh oh

There is another in the fire oh oh

There is another in the fire oh oh

Bridge

And I can see the light in the darkness  

As the darkness bows to Him 

I can hear the roar in the heavens 

As the space between wears thin 

I can feel the ground shake beneath us  

As the prison walls cave in 

Nothing stands between us 

Nothing stands between us 

Verse 3

There is no other name 

But the name that is Jesus 

He who was and still is 

And will be through it all 

So come what may in the space between  

All the things unseen and this reckoning 

I know I will never be alone 

And I know I will never be alone

Chorus

There’ll be another in the fire  

Standing next to me 

There’ll be another in the waters  

Holding back the seas 

And should I ever need reminding  

How good You’ve been to me 

I’ll count the joy come every battle  

‘Cause I know that’s where You’ll be 

Bridge

And I can see the light in the darkness  

As the darkness bows to Him 

I can hear the roar in the heavens 

As the space between wears thin 

I can feel the ground shake beneath us  

As the prison walls cave in 

Nothing stands between us 

Nothing stands between us
