Make Me Desperate

If I am not on fire
How can I convince others to burn?

If I am not thirsty for God
How can I get others to drink of living water?

If I am not hungry for His Word
How can I bring others to eat?

If I am not with God
What am I, what have I

But dust
But ashes of a broken man

I need a resurrection

I need fresh fire

I need a revelation of You

My God
Come burn in me again

Such fire I have never known

Come shake me with such passion
For those lost that I

May weep
As I have never wept before

Make me hunger
Like I have never hungered

Make me thirst
As I have never thirsted

Make me that
Which I have never been before

Make me Yours
Take me deeper into You

Lord make us desperate
And bring us back to You!

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

You Just Have to Hang On

When faced with power of
Holy God in Heaven we
Are powerless, truly we are nothing without

Him who saved us for Himself

When faced with mission to
Save the lost and heal the sick
We must not fear, for power of

He in us is
Enough, enough
Against this dark and evil age

Against any power of the earth

And if we ask, in repentance
If we call on His name
He will meet us, and He will give us Himself

In form of Holy Spirit fire

And we, must not hinder it
Not fear the fire of
His glory or

Seek to control where it rages

For it, for He
Serves only One
Only Him who made it so

And He, He is One with Him
The uncreated God in Heaven and
He is not tame, nor is He weak and feeble

He is the uncreated, holy God
The Great I AM, the uncontainable
Passionate Savior, the beautiful Lover

The jealous God, whose Name is such
Whose Name is Jealous

And we, when given fire are
Not to try and dim it or
Contain it for our use

Nor are we expected to
Do anything for God without Him
Without His hand leading us

For without Him, we cannot
Without Him we are weak and flesh
But with Him, but in His hands we are

Vessels for His name, children of the Living God
Saved by His own blood!

And when He asks us to
Do something that seems
Impossible, or too daunting for

Any man of earth

We must simply, trust in Him who is
Forever good, forever just and
Unyielding to evil and

Relent to, His Holy call
Surrender to His perfect will
We must simply, hang on, and let Him carry us

And let Him use us as He wills

For He can be trusted, and He is good
So let us trust Him with our lives and
Simply hang on, to His name and Spirit and

Trust, in Him who leads us on
And let His perfect will lead us to Him,
To have as walk as He did

Not by power of ourselves but
Only of Him who loves us so
We must simply, we must unyieldingly

Hang on, hang on to His Spirit and
Let Him guide us where He wills

For He can be trusted, and He is good
Let us give our all to Him
That we may be, worthy vessels of

His Holy Name and will
Children of, the God in Heaven and
Those led by His Spirit, consumes by

His very Spirit fire
Aflame by His love
Burning for the glory of, Him and Him alone

His, and His alone
Let us cling to Him who saves
To Him who bids us to simply hang on

Him who leads us on!
