we shout to you “wake up, come out of your slumber!”
you show us that you are already awake
your singing has never stopped
your shouts of joy have never ceased
in pain, in trial, in conflict
your voice shouts the greatest of all
it brings more life to the world than water to the earth
you sing you us
we stand changed
now we have come alive
through the life in your lungs
that flows out of your heart
into the stoney parts of ours we had a moment before
we want to tell you who you are
you sing it back to us
we came to give
we receive more when you smile
you have much more to show us
will we ask?
you have much more to offer
will we receive?
you have much more life to sing
will we breathe it in?
