Awake

Updated: Mar 28, 2020


Last night I watched as Liberty's student body responded to the message of Ephesians 5:8-14. There are so many things that lull us to sleep. Whether it's something that has happened to us or the mundane things of the day. It is so easy to coast through life, but there's so much more.

This is a song I wrote years ago. It's one I've been praying over and over again this year. Over myself but also those around me. Its' inspiration comes from Ephesian 2:1-10 & 5:8-14. It's already had personal meaning to me, but watching these truths play out in the lives of others last night took it to the next level.

For those not at Campus Community! Here's the link to the message and worship with, Tyler Staton. I highly recommend watching it!

Lyrics

Lookin’ back at the girl that I used to be

Hopeless there I was yet you rescued me

Reaching in with your mercy

Walking around numb and according to my pain

But then I caught a glimpse of what you had for me

I caught a glimpse of your mercy

You said awake O sleeper and rise from your grave

You said awake O sleeper

I’m not done with you today

There I see you walking on the street with heavy burdens

But don’t you know the Lord says cast your cares on me

Ill make you free

Ill pick you up again, with my mercy

You said awake O sleeper and rise from your grave

You said awake O sleeper and rise from your grave

You said awake O sleeper and rise from your grave

You said awake O sleeper

I’m not done with you today

This is a message to the fatherless

This is a message to the widow and depressed

And all who feel condemned and oppressed

This is a Message to all who feel confused

after being pushed around by abuse

and all those stuck in rebellion

The Lord loves you

Oh the Lord says, awake oh sleeper and rise from your grave

Yes the Lord says ill make you new today

Awake o sleeper and rise from your grave

He’s says I’m making a new thing in you today

So awake oh sleeper, and rise from your grave

Awake oh sleeper and rise from the grave

Awake oh sleeper, Christ light shines on you today

Yes you shine bright today
