09. Let Your Day Begin

The Answer To The Question
by Tree63



 

Lord, are you still coming?
This world is all in shame
Everything is broken
But you remain...

Have mercy on me, Jesus
I can’t take one more step
The lights go out all around me

I want to see your face
I want to hear your voice
I want to lay my burden down
I want to run to you
Forever dance with you
I long for night to end
Lord let your day begin

The sons of men are hiding
Pretending to be free
They’re yearning to escape you
For “liberty”...

I want to see...

But all I want, Lord Jesus
Only you can give
When the light goes out all around me:

I want to see...

Behind the Song:
"In June 2003, on a plane to Seattle, I read the latest edition of Rolling Stone from cover to cover and put it down weary with what it revealed about the state of this world. The opening line, "Lord are you still coming?" popped straight into my head as a direct response. It's the prayer of any Christian weary of being constantly bombarded with the sin of this modern era, and aching for it to be all over and to be home with God in heaven. In a world where every single thing appears truly warped and broken, heaven is the only place we can put our hope in." - John Ellis (Tree 63)
