Wake, O Sleeper

WAKE,O SLEEPER by Brandy Watson

Wake, O sleeper, wake.

Wake and Rise

For your minds have been dulled

And your hearts hardened

Against the injustices of your time.

 

Be still, O restless soul.

Be still and hear.

The very earth cries out

With the pain of her children

Begging to be heard

 

Now, My loves, now

Is the time to act

Pray, first with words

Then with actions

For My Kingdom on this Earth

 

Wake, O sleeper, wake

Hear the melody of My love song

For all of mankind

Take it into your soul

Teach it to your children

 

Courage, dear heart, courage

The world may seem too dark

But My love will light the way

Be a light bearer, a love bringer

To the lost, hurting, hardened world

 

Oh, my loves, my lambs

See My face in the eyes

Of your neighbor, a stranger

A child, a refugee, a beggar

Love Me ,by loving them

 

Rest,O weary soul,rest

Rest in the knowledge

That you are loved

That you are enough

That you are MINE.
