This song was more of an intro to the album than anything else, but it still had significance. In fact, there’s only one line in the whole song: “Awake, arise, lift up your voice and sing.”
for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said:
“Wake up, O sleeper,
rise from the dead,
and Christ will shine on you.”
Ephesians 5:14 (NIV)
The first time our band ever played in public, it was at a local youth event called “Awake.” The event was taglined, “An event of spiritual awakening.” I believe our nation is in dire need of a spiritual awakening. We can be a part of a massive move of God, if we’d just wake up to God’s presence around us!
A note about today’s song: the song seems to end abruptly with “lift up your voice and…” The word “sing” is actually the first part of the song “Accept My Heart.” These songs were number 1 and number 2 on the album, so one went right into another. So go ahead and download that song (posted on day 2), and play them back to back.
