Come Awake

Thursday, March 01, 2012

I can not get this song out of my head.  At all.  And I don't really care, because it's constantly turning my focus back to Jesus, where it needs to be.  I looked a different versions, as the original is by Matt Maher, but this one really caught my attention.  I know it's a bit longer than a normal song, but the poetry by David Bowden in the middle of the song, is really cool, and challenging.  It adds, in my opinion, even more of an incredible depth to the song.  Not gonna lie, it might be my hormones, or just my thankfulness, but I had tears streaming down my face by the end of the song.  There is just something about hope and the saving grace of Christ that does it to me.  As Easter draws near, I pray I can continue to focus on what Jesus has done on the Cross, and all that He has conquered.
