Awake

(c) 2008 Bridget Willard, Joel Klampert moreofjesus.com CCLI#5363177

Verse 1

I was created to be transformed
Created to be like You
Created to be reborn
And love nothing but You
I choose to yield to Your will oh Lord
To yield to Your way
To yield to Your grace and truth
In You there is no shame

Misc 1

(PRE-CHORUS)
I want my heart to yearn for You
Lord take my heart and renew

Chorus 1

Awake
Awake my soul
And I will sing Your praise
And I will not be ashamed
Awake
Awake my soul
I sing praises to Your Name
Praise to the High King
Awake awaken my soul

Misc 2

(BRIDGE)
Awake
Awake
Awaken my soul
Awake
Awake
Lord make me whole
