come awake

Have you ever listened to a song you've heard many times then all of a sudden, God says "this is for you, right now" and uses it to speak to your heart about what has been weighing on you? Tonight as we were driving back from our big long weekend, we were jamming to David Crowder and I heard, really heard, Come Awake for the first time. He reminded me that even when I am brought down by doubt, He loves me, understands me, and He created infinite beauty beyond what I can see or understand. Tonight, I can rest in this.

Are we left here on our own?
Can you feel when your last breath is gone?
Night is weighing heavy now
Be quiet and wait for a voice that will say

Come awake, from sleep arise
You were dead, become alive
Wake up, wake up, open your eyes
Climb from your grave into the light
Bring us back to life

You are not the only one
who feels like the only one
Night soon will be lifted, friend
Just be quiet and wait for a voice that will say

Come awake, from sleep arise
You were dead, become alive
Wake up, wake up, open your eyes
Climb from your grave into the light

Rise, rise, to life, to life

Shine, shine, oh shine
Light will shine
Love will rise
Light will shine, shine, shine, shine
He’s shining on us now


I looked for the lyrics at jesusfreakhideout.com and they also posted the story behind the song, directly from David Crowder himself (presumably?). It's raw, and real, and beautiful.
