11. Incomprehensible Sleep

The Sleeping House
by Cool Hand Luke



 

Our lives up to this point have lead to this
A garden in the dark, a deadly kiss (Matthew 36:47-49)
If you want to follow me
Weíll walk into suffering
Itís this act that will distinguish us

My disciples, those Iíve chosen (John 15:16)
Donít listen to the sirens
Donít you know that I would never lead you astray
Tie yourself to the mast and cover your ears with wax and
Keep your gaze on me, for Godís sake stay awake

Sometimes you have to close your eyes to see.
Sometimes to walk you have to get down on your knees.
All I ask is that you pray
All I ask is that you stay awake
But your dreams betray me

My disciples, those Iíve chosen
Donít listen to the sirens
Donít you know that I would never lead you astray
Tie yourself to the mast and cover your ears with wax and
Keep your gaze on me, for Godís sake stay awake

Wake up.

Are you resting? Are you still asleep?

Wake Up, O Sleeper (Ephesians 5:14)
Wake Up and say a prayer
Wake Up, O Sleeper
Are you my betrayer?
Wake up, O Sleeper
Wake up, O Sleeper
Incomprehensible, Incomprehensible



Behind the Song:
"The incomprehensible sleep is the sleep Christís disciples fell into as he prayed in Gethsemane. Jesusí only request to them in his darkest hour was to stay awake and pray, yet, they failed him. We, too, have all fallen into this incomprehensible sleep. We can wake up. Indeed, we will wake up. Do you hear Him calling us? ďSet your hearts on things above, not on earthly things.Ē (Colossians 3:1,2)

The title for this song was inspired by a sermon by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who knew suffering better than I can imagine. The sermon is entitled Judas. It was preached in Finkenwalde, Germany on March 14, 1937." - Mark Nicks (Cool Hand Luke)

Matthew 26:36-46
