 Asleep in the Light- Lyrics!

Great song Jarona! If I'm not mistaken your thread was probably locked due to the youtube link, not the song. Here are the lyrics.


[color=000099]Do you see, do you see, all the people sinking down,
Don't you care, don't you care, are you gonna let them drown,
How can you be so numb, not to care if they come,
You close your eyes and pretend the job's done.

Oh Bless me Lord, bless me Lord, you know it's all I ever hear,
No one aches, no one hurts, no one even sheds one tear,
But He cries, He weeps, He bleeds, and He cares for your needs,
And you just lay back and keep soaking it in, oh, can't you see it's such sin?

Cause He brings people to your door,
And you turn them away, as you smile and say,
God bless you, be at peace, and all Heaven just weeps,
Cause Jesus came to your door, you've left Him out on the streets.

Open up, open up, and give yourself away,
You've seen the need, you hear the cry, so how can you delay,
God's calling and you're the one, but like Jonah you run,
He's told you to speak, but you keep holding it in,
Oh, can't you see it's such sin?

The world is sleeping in the dark,
That the church can't fight, cause it's asleep in the light,
How can you be so dead, when you've been so well fed,
Jesus rose from the grave, and you, you can't even get out of bed,
Oh, Jesus rose from the dead, come on, get out of your bed.

How can you be so numb, not to care if they come,
You close your eyes and pretend the job's done,
You close your eyes and pretend the job's done,
Don't close your eyes, don't pretend the job's done.
Come away, come away, come away with Me, My love,
Come away, from this mess, come away with Me, My love.[/color]


In His Love,

Doug

 Re: Asleep in the Light- Lyrics!

This past Saturday the 28th of July was the 25th Anniversary of Keith Green's entrance into glory. The American church seems to disregard his message more now than ever. Let's pray that the Lord will work in people's hearts to take this message up anew!

 Re:

Keith Green was one of my heroes in the faith when I was a newborn babe. I got saved one month after his going home to glory. We could sure use more artists like him, unfortuneately he probably wouldn't even get a contract with lyrics like that today, even if the music was "modernized."

Blessings in Christ,

Doug

He's one of my heroes too. I'm rereading his biography and it's helping me more this time than when I read it before.

 Re:

25 years... and not a peep from the church at large about him, or his effect on a whole generation of believers. If you ask me, he has had more of an effect for the Lord than any of these big name people we see being touted about as the "evangelical leaders" of the American church.

Here was a guy with way too much curly hair and corduroy pants... just playing his music and preaching a hard message from God...

God is pleased with the humble things of this world.

 Re:

I have a CCM Magazine from '92 that ran a special on the tenth anniversary of Keith Green's death. They "politely" trashed him. Even then he was still not so popular in the Christian music scene that seemed more glad he was gone. And after watching the life story video I came away less of a Randy Stonehill fan.

Today his music is not even in the faint memories of most young Christians. It's rather sad. And most today don't remember what CCM was about 15yrs ago. I came along right at the end of it, right before all the big labels started buying up the Christian music industry and started signing artists who would sing stuff that could be sold in Wal Mart. The ministry went out the door for the most part.

 Re: Asleep in the Light- Lyrics!

Here's another one of my favorites.

[color=000099][u][b]To Obey Is Better Than Sacrifice[/b][/u]

To obey is better than sacrifice,
I don't need your money, I want your life.
And I hear you say that I'm coming back soon,
But you act like I'll never return.

Well you speak of grace and my love so sweet,
How you thrive on milk, but reject my meat,
And I can't help weeping of how it will be,
If you keep on ignoring my words.

Well you pray to prosper and succeed,
But your flesh is something I just can't feed

To obey is better than sacrifice.
I want more than Sunday and Wednesday nights,
Cause if you can't come to me every day,
Then don't bother coming at all.
Lah, lah,lah….

To obey is better than sacrifice.
I want hearts of fire, not your prayers of ice.
And I'm coming quickly, to give back to you,
According to what you have done,
According to what you have done,
According to what you have done.[/color]

 Re:

Here is a live video of the song [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHamV1pfMJU&mode=related&search=]Asleep in the Light[/url].

There are still some people are writing stuff his confrontational and bold, even from the newest generation...

For instance, watch this video of a song by Abraham Juliot:
[url=http://vimeo.com/254332]Who did you tell?[/url]

Check out these song by Erin Alderson:
[url=http://openlife.michaelspotts.com/erinalderson/seekyefirstthekingdomofgod.mp3]Seek first the kingdom of God[/url]
[url=http://openlife.michaelspotts.com/erinalderson/matthew510.mp3]Matthew 5:10[/url]

Thank God, labels aren't so necessary now with grass-roots internet venues!

But, yeah, Keith was on a level few will touch.
