wake up.

8 Nov

this past weekend when the community of faith of which i consider myself a part gathered at one of our campuses, Dave Lin and his band introduced this song to the congregation.  a little over a month ago i tweeted one of its lines : ‘wake on up from your slumber.’  here are the rest of the lyrics ::

days, they force you
back under those covers
lazy mornings, they multiply
but glory’s waiting
outside your window
so wake on up from your slumber
baby, open up your eyes

tongues are violent
personal and focused
tough to beat with
your steady mind
but hearts are stronger after broken
so wake on up from your slumber
baby, open up your eyes

all these victims
stand in line for
the crumbs that fall from the table
just enough to get by
all the while, your invitation ::
wake on up from your slumber
baby, open up your eyes
wake on up from your slumber
baby, open up your eyes

take from vandals
all you want now
please, don’t trade it in for life
replace the feeble with the fable
wake on up from your slumber
baby, open up your eyes
wake on up from your slumber
baby, open up your eyes

all these victims
stand in line for
the crumbs that fall from the table
just enough to get by
all the while, your invitation ::
wake on up from your slumber
baby, open up your eyes
wake on up from your slumber
baby, open up your eyes

come on
sing like we used to
dance when you want to
taste of the breakthrough
and open wide

all these victims
stand in line for
the crumbs that fall from the table
just enough to get by
all the while, your invitation ::
wake on up from your slumber
baby, open up your eyes
wake on up from your slumber
baby, open up your eyes

come on
sing like we used to
and dance like you want to
come on now and open your eyes

a question for each of us :: what is it God is trying to wake you up to?
