Asleep In The Light

Keith Green

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 you needs

And you just lay back

And keep soaking it in

Oh can’t you see it’s such a sin

‘Cause He brings people to you 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 you door

You’ve left him out on the streets

Open up open up

And give yourself away

You see the need, you hear the cries

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 a sin?

The world is sleeping in the dark

That the church just 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, come away, come away with me my love”
