Keith Green was 29 when he died in 1982. He was not only a forerunner in the Christian music scene, he also had a clear sense of Jesus’ radical call and didn’t shy away from his hard truths. These lyrics are more relevant now than ever.

Asleep in the Light

Do you see, do you see, all the people sinking down,

Don’t you care, don’t you care, are you gonna let them
drown,

How can you be so numb, not to care if they come,

You close your eyes and pretend the job’s done.

——————————————————————————–

Oh Bless me Lord, bless me Lord, you know it’s all I ever
hear,

No one aches, no one hurts, no one even sheds one tear,

But He cries, He weeps, He bleeds, and He cares for your
needs,

And you just lay back and keep soaking it in, oh, can’t you
see it’s such sin?

——————————————————————————–

Cause He brings people to your door,

And you turn them away, as you smile and say,

God bless you, be at peace, and all Heaven just weeps,

Cause Jesus came to your door, you’ve left Him out on the
streets.

——————————————————————————–

Open up, open up, and give yourself away,

You’ve seen the need, you hear the cry, so how can you
delay,

God’s calling and you’re the one, but like Jonah you run,

He’s told you to speak, but you keep holding it in,

Oh, can’t you see it’s such sin?

——————————————————————————–

The world is sleeping in the dark,

That the church can’t fight, cause it’s asleep in the light,

How can you be so dead, when you’ve been so well fed,

Jesus rose from the grave, and you, you can’t even get out
of bed,

Oh, Jesus rose from the dead, come on, get out of your bed.

——————————————————————————–

How can you be so numb, not to care if they come,

You close your eyes and pretend the job’s done,

You close your eyes and pretend the job’s done,

Don’t close your eyes, don’t pretend the job’s done.

Come away, come away, come away with Me, My love,

Come away, from this mess, come away with Me, My love.
