Lion Awaking


Your light is a mighty force

Breaking the night of my affliction

Your hope is a stately horse

Galloping in redeeming fashion


As the clouds lift I can now see

That through their dark majesty

All along it was You shielding me

In blinding light or utter darkness

You would never alone leave me


My soul already seems to miss

Your gentle heart in my brokenness

I weep at the rushing water

Grace rivers remake me a lover


You are in every moment

The balm in every aching


You were with me as a jewel

A quiet indwelling beauty


You were with me as a Lamb

A soft and warming company


But now you roar like a Lion

Awake in me O King!
