I awake today – a declaration of faith

I awake today to a new reality

Knowing that the completed totality

Of my life is restoration

At the hands of the God of my salvation

As I open my eyes to Christ the son

Knowing that he’s the only one

Powerful to gracefully restore me

And heal my broken history.

I awake today to a new reality

Knowing that there’s no more futility

Because of Jesus Christ, God’s son

And the eternal battle he’s already won

When he crushed the serpents head

Declaring I should rise from the dead

And that my past is forgiven

Birthed now into a new way of living

I awake today to a new reality

Swimming in God’s love like the sea

Swelling around me in power

And I’m lost in that love and this is my hour

To rise up like a mighty lion

No more striving, struggling or trying

Just to get by each day

Jesus is showing me a better way

I awake today to a new reality

Of living in the spirits strength

And leaning into the power he will give

And in that power I choose to live

Because I’ll trust in his word

And wield it like the warriors sword

And I’ll press into god seeking for more

And the world will hear this lion roar.

I awake today to a new reality

Where to god I am surrendered

Living dependent on his deep love

Fixing my eyes on Christ above

Walking in the Holy Spirits power

This is my day, this is the hour

When god steps down to lift my days

To heavens throne and the fathers Gaze
