12. Last Night's Daydream

So Much For Substitutes
by downhere


From my sleep tonight
I woke to a frightening sight
All the best of me
Held up to Your perfect light
I reached for Your hand by moonlight
Could anyone ever match Your love
Of Your mercy's touch, Your kindness

While the world is asleep now
I'm wrapped up in wonder
Of all I could never dream
That night is a treasure
I want to remember
I want to forever be
In last night's daydream

So steeped in Your presence
Like pinches, it woke me from a dream
Now I see the paint run
On the water-color kingdom
And I want to believe again
Just like the first time
When from my eyes
You took the scales that blinded
Here am I for Your sending
Could anyone ever match Your love
Of Your mercy's touch, Your kindness


When I come to the end of me
I'm relying on someone other
Come to the end of me
I'll be living for someone stronger


The world is still sleeping
I want to remember

Written by Jason Germain / Marc Martel

Behind the Song:
Isa. 6
This turned into a worship song about being in the amazing and awesome presence of God. To paraphrase Isaiah 6, it's about someone waking up in the middle of the night in the presence of God at a time when He's chosen to reveal something new to them. We wish we could live the rest of our life in the realization of that moment, as God revealed himself clearer than He ever had before. - Marc Martel (downhere)
