Can anyone help dig up the lyrics to this early "Jesus music" song:
The chorus of it is something like:

"Father, break me, take me through the fire
Oh Father, hold me, mold me just as you desire
I am just a cup to overflow your will
But first I must be empty to be filled."

I think it was by Terry and/or John Michael Talbot, late seventies perhaps? I can find occasional conflicting references to it but can't find the whole thing.
The tune and accompaniment are well fixed in my motor memory but the cognitive brain cells that knew the words have long gone.

Thanks in advance
