From the recording Fear Is Not an Option EP

I was motivated to write this song after reading Ephesians 5:14, "Therefore He says: "Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light."

This verse insinuates that some of God's people lay dormant in a spiritual slumber that God wants to wake us from. He promises that "Christ will give us light" if we awake."

If that is the case with any of us, let's hear the alarm from God's throne of grace, arise, and be the ambassadors of Christ, the light of the world He has called us to be.


Why do you sleep - while darkness invades?
Why do you sleep - while Time slips away?
Why do you sleep - when light needs to shine?
Why do you act like everything‘s fine?

Go now - tell His great story.
Go now - His gospel proclaim.
Go now - please don’t ignore me.
Time is short - to preach Jesus' name!

Souls in the balance - are heading to hell.
Our duty to warn - God’s truth we must tell.
Jesus came - to seek and save the lost.
Christian arise - time to count the cost.

Why do you sleep - when God says awake?
Now is the time - to give and not take.
Why do you sleep? there’s truth to foretell.
Rise up - storm the gates of hell.

Second Chorus
Go now - tell them Jesus loves them!
Go now - tell them Jesus cares!
Go now - tell them Jesus saves!
God has not given you a spirit of fear!
