You’ve awakened me from slumber sweet,
No minor victory in this life’s off beat,
Calling me to come and truly see,
The miracle You’ve displayed over the Sea.
Here I sit in the first of mornings dawn,
Waters and waves break like a breathing lawn,
And as I wait with stilled breath,
The sunrise breaks in layered depth.
First a hint of softening rose and glow,
Then a lightening of the horizons show.
Before my eyes the sun unfolds,
In layers of pink, blue, rose and gold.
A single ship raises sail against the sky,
And I know I’m blessed to witness night to fly.
O praise You Lord for another day,
Great are You, I Am, to show me The Way.
Before me lays a promise sweet,
As my breath and heart join the beat,
You’ve exploded the sky with colors great,
And call to me it is not too late,
To proclaim Your love, mercy and grace,
As sure as this sunrise breaks upon my face.
Let all with breath,
Praise the Lord,
Rolling back the night that fell
Reminding me of Your truth to tell,
A ball of a golden-orangish hue
Bids the flowers, birds and clouds
Love and live the Lord out loud.
O the peace that my heart feels
From the assurance You are real
For only Your’s is such a face
To bring Your love alive
Such patience You do exercise,
