a new song

I heard this song for the first time yesterday on the way to the grocery store.  Some people don’t like Contemporary Christian songs, saying they’re shallow.  There are songs like this though, that for me, translate something roaming inside me, allowing it to come out, freeing my soul, choir-directing my heart to praise and love Jesus, giving credit where credit is due.

Your Love Awakens Me
by Phil Wickham

There were walls between us
By the cross you came
and broke them down
You broke them down

There were chains around us
By Your grace we are
No longer bound
No longer bound

You called me out of the grave
You called me into the light
You called my name
and then my heart came alive

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens
Awakens
Awakens me

Feel the darkness shaking
All the dead are coming
Back to life
Back to life

Hear the song awaken
All creation singing
We’re alive
Cause You’re alive

You called me out from the grave
You called me into the light
You called my name
and then my heart came alive

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens
Awakens
Awakens me

What a love we found
Death can’t hold us down
We shout it out
We’re alive
Cause You’re alive

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens
Awakens
Awakens me

Your love is greater
Your love is stronger
Your love awakens
Awakens
Awakens me
