Awakening Me

It's your kindness that I love

Your mercy that I need

Your peace when I am anxious

Your grace when I believe

The longer I live

The stronger it grows

This passion for you

That is filling my soul

The longer I follow

This longing I feel

The more I awaken

To what you reveal

Your love is awakening me

As you give me all that I need

I give all I freely receive

In praises because I believe

I'm longing to live

In that beautiful place

Where my passion for you

Will forever erase

Every hurt, every pain

With your glorious grace

And the kindness I find

In your beautiful face

The more that I learn

Of your wonderful love

I am setting my mind

On your glory above

I am yearning to know

And to love more and more

This wonderful one

I am wakening for

(Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ,

keep seeking the things above, where Christ is,

seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on

the things above, not on the things that are on earth.

Colossians 3:1-2)
