Verse 1
I know you’ve been sleeping in your bed of sin
Life’s passing by while you’ve been sleeping in
I know you’ve been running, running from His grace
Why don’t you know that you can’t get away
Chorus
Wake up, oh sleeper, rise from the dead
Christ will shine on you
Wake up, oh sleeper, rise from the dead
Christ will shine on you
Verse 2
Now you’ve been busy sleeping in the shadows of your own
Wasting the gift of your life
Now the sun is rising, the shadows are gone
Get up, wake up, for you’ve been justified
Bridge
The prodigal is waking up
The wayward child is waking up
The down and out is waking up
The prisoner is waking up
The lonely soul is waking up
The Pharisee is waking up
I hope the church is waking up
Everybody’s waking up
