Awaken Me

January 23, 2020—

When we experience a vibrant connection with God, it can be extremely difficult to cope when He seems silent and distant. Today’s song by Casting Crowns expresses the spirit of these moments when we search and listen for God, but cannot hear Him: “Awaken Me.”

Lord, what were you saying?

I must have fallen asleep

Could’ve sworn I heard You talking

Oh, maybe it was just a dream

It sounded something like redemption

An echo from a younger day

Lord, how long have I been drifting?

My tears have fallen as I pray

Today, let us quiet ourselves and search for God’s presence within our hearts, in prayer, reading, and reflection—that we may feel Him and know He is there.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

Lord, what were you saying?
I must have fallen asleep
Could've sworn I heard You talking
Oh, maybe it was just a dream
It sounded something like redemption
An echo from a younger day
Lord, how long have I been drifting?
My tears have fallen as I pray

Lord, wake up the sleeper
I lift my head, I lift my head
Your search light's found me
Here at my end, I'm at my end

Is it the fear of falling down again
Oh, that keeps me sitting here?
I'd rather wander in the shadows
Than have to look into the mirror
There's so much madness all around me
They wear their darkness on their sleeves
But now my blinded eyes are open
And I see the darkest part of me

Lord, wake up the sleeper
I lift my head, I lift my head
Your search light's found me
Here at my end, I'm at my end

Lord, let Your fire make holy
These lips unclean
Shine down in all Your glory
Awaken me

Lord, let Your fire make holy
These lips unclean
Shine down in all Your glory
Awaken me

Lord, wake up the sleeper
Lord, let Your fire make holy
These lips unclean
Your search light's found me
Shine down in all Your glory
Awaken me
Lord, let Your fire make holy
These lips unclean
Shine down in all Your glory
Awaken me
