See, my Saviour,
I am waking up,
Though I feel like a man
Waking up from a very strong stupor.
There are no scales in my eyes
But gosh, these eyes are heavy
And the new light that shines
It starts with itching but thankfully soothes.
I am waking up, Saviour
To the reality You’ve called me into-
I rise but I am used to gravity
So my heart races as You raise me up.
I want to be where You are;
Yet indeed that is where I am,
But the winds and voices from below
Would accost my ascension.
But I am awakening;
This dead body is responding to Your life
Albeit slow and stubborn at times,
I know my old life is not here any more.
I am awakening
To the sound of Your voice;
There’s a secret key my new ears respond to
They are keen on the life in the words You speak.
What can I call you Lord,
A word that can resonate with my heart’s mind;
Abba, Saviour, Lover, Friend?
Oh, that there was a word to say it all!
There’s a flame in my heart
As I think on You-
That You brought me into a needed death
A death that is accepted to the Father because it is Yours.
And a life and resurrection
Docked in You;
My life has gone, Yours has come
My time has passed, Your day is here.
I am awakening Lord to this new day, new life
As you breathe in me, defeating gravity;
Adam has gone – Christ is come
My whole being rejoices and sings!
Hallelujah for the death, resurrection and the life
Zion is home, heritage and life;
The Messiah has brought me into His own
A new day is here in Christ alone.
