Come Alive

Break down the walls
Break down these walls oh saul
Won’t you come in?
Won’t you commit?

Oh your murderous soul,
Is more valued than gold
And your distorted thoughts
Are all that I want

See how blindness will change you now
When you lose your sight, you will gain my life
And all you’ve cherished has been torn down
But in the face love, you have come alive

Carry your cross,
Cause my grace is enough for you
The thorn is not strong
And it won’t last too long

It’s better than death
There will be no regret
And your life will be filled with the peace and the still I have wanted for you

See how blindness will change you now
When you lose your sight, you will gain my life
And all you’ve cherished has been torn down
But in the face love, you have come alive

The scales have fallen to the ground
And with your open eyes, you can see my light
So stand, as millions surround you now
In the face of love, you have come alive

In this song, I was inspired by the apostle Paul and parts of his story. Before he became the famous apostle, Paul (at the time Saul of Tarsus) was a regular Christian lynching machine. Against all logic, God calls Saul to serve him through Christ, and makes in Saul a new man. Perhaps it’s a conversion story we can all experience, whether we are lost friends, or enemies of God. In the end, if we do surrender ourselves to this Great Love, then we will find a truly rewarding life.
