10. Draw Near

Are We There Yet?
by John Reuben



 

(Chorus):
Death whispers words of defeat in my ear
My God I draw near, my God I draw near

God of creation here I stand
I've left babylon to find out who I am
I've traveled I've struggled I've failed in vain
My own ability will never see eternal gain
God of creation it's you whom I seek
Lord I feel strapped n tied down and my strenght is weak
Oh Lord when I cry out please hear what I speak
Bring life to my body awaken this sleep

(Chorus)

When all vanishes and I stand in this
place to face the truth for what it is
With no human esacpe to hide behind
just my soul n God and I find it mind blowing
Knowin that humanity and a mere mortal man like me
Can have my slate cleaned of mistakes and
the chance to put on immortality
Even though darkness has hardened us in
deception and spoken otherwise
Man I refuse to take in that nonsense, and
I refuse to buy into these lies
These lies of pain, these lies of shame,
These lies of complete disfunction

This lie of hopelessness that will make a
person feel like they're nothing
This lie that will make me feel like my
struggle is one too much to fix 'n
Isn't that what darkness wants for me to
play the role of a victim
But I'm a child of light and no longer
am I bound by slavery
I say oh death were is your sting
And oh Hades where's your victory?

Hear my cry oh God
Attend to my prayer
From the end of the earth I will cry to you
When my heart's overwhelmed I will cry to you
Leave it to the rock that is higher than I
For you have been a shelter for me
I will abide in your time forever
My God I draw near, my God I draw near

(Chorus)
