For the Dawn

I watched, and waited
Eagerly, anticipating
The dawning, breaking light
That never was to come

In a world of darkness, with no hope
Light is, just a dream
A memory, of a past long gone
Lost in our own vanity

Now I gaze, over the cities
Waiting, for the light of day
Never to come, for we are too lost
Our fires have gone out

And I fear we will never burn again

So all is dark, for now
Only one candle remains
One small light, in a world of darkness
Begging us to hope again

And at last I see it,
A tinge of light, there
Coming on the horizon
I rise, and shout to the city

Dawn is coming!

But see, none stir
No one rises, from their slumber
They sleep, content in darkness
Not wanting to wake and see the light

Rising up before them

And now, I understand it
Why the light, has forsaken these lands
We have stopped desiring it.
We have stopped needing it.

Our necessity, for light has faded
To a contentment in the dark
So even now, as the sun rises
None wish to see

All our happy,
Safe in slumber
Dreaming of the night, and hoping
Darkness prevails

For night safer, darkness is comfortable
Light is blinding, revealing all
Men’s hearts prefer to hide their sins than
Confess and find repentance in the light

So now I see, as the sun rises
We are in need
We are in desperate need
Of fire, of a hunger

To see the light again

Darkness remains, for now
But I see the sun is rising
So for the dawn, I will wait
For the light, I will pray

And keep on walking, keep shaking
These sleeping ones, in hope they wake
To crave, to yearn once more
To see the sun again

To burn with fire once again

Now we gather, we few who hunger
Given our need by the light itself
Breaking through the blackness
We wait, we pray

For the dawn, we will yearn
For fire, we will cry
To see our homes alight again
To see our city burning bright once more

That all the darkness will flee
Every shadow, will fall
Every chain bound around us will fall
As our Savior rushes in

Riding the wings of the dawn

I know, it is not too much to hope for
I know, revival is near
So we wait, so we pray
We hunger, we cry out once more

For the dawn
For fresh fire till it comes
For need of Light, and love of day
Come burn in us again, as we wait

For the dawn
