Awaken from a long night's sleep
my whole life trapped in slumber,
I lived in darkness wasn't aware
of all that I was under.
Then one day I felt this change
consumed my body and soul,
the difference was like night and day
and now I feel I'm whole.
And in this plan there came a time
when God spoke to me,
he took my burdens from my heart
and now my soul is free.
A key he gave to unlock my past
and throw my pain away,
and now my heart is finally full,
love has room to stay.
God speaks to me once again,
There's something I must do.
He wants me to work for him,
to reach my hand out too.
Work with children and teach them,
They have power to be strong.
To keep them safe from all that harms,
to know what's right and wrong.
If someone hurts them,
They must tell someone they know,
to never keep bad secrets,
it will surely hurt them so.
If I could help save one child
from so much hurt and pain,
My life would be a fuller one
not lived at all in vain.
