Jacob’s song

when you

you made a universe

when you

you made the sacrifice

when you

you lost a son

when you

you became a father

for all the lost, the broken, the sick, the weary souls

that were roaming in the dark

when they were searching for a spark of hope

replacing all their misery

with new life

when you

you lit the dark

when you

you saved the ark

when you

you wiped my tears

when you

you calmed my fears

when you

you redeemed the years

when I

I existed only in tears

 

Because I

I claim the the king

Because I

I worship His greatness

Because I

I must only ask mercy

Because I

I am demanded to worship

Because I

I have been given forgiven

Because I

I believe in his holiness

and because I

I can see his wondrous works

So that I

I now proclaim

And I

I am shouting glory

Because I

I am praising majesty

And he

He is reigning over me

Because he

it is he that loves me.

So I

I am shouting glory

And I

I am screaming mercy

And he

He is granting mercy

and a thousand blessings to add to my new perfection

And I

I am shouting to glory

And I

I often seek in humanity

to find something sweeter to replace my king

blinded so often by the fears that cover this t-shirt in ash

blinded so often by the regret that echoes through my past

until he

he tells me to pray mercy

and I pray

and I pray

and I pray

until he

he tells me to shout glory

and I am still praying for mercy

and he

he tells me to shout glory

and I

I am crying blessings

and he

he is revealing glory

and I

I am crying blessing

and he

he is giving blessing

and I

I am crying glory

and I

I am shouting glory

and he

he has shown his glory.
