Beyond Mere Existence

Why does it seem so easy

To slowly grow so cold,

To lose that fire we once had known

That burned within our souls?

We start to lose the joy

And life becomes a bore,

We just live from day to day

With no hope in the Lord.

We give up on the dreams,

We once had in our hearts,

We settle down to mere existence

Alone within the dark.

Oh God our spirits yearn

To know you so much more,

We don’t want to just exist

But know you as before

To feel your presence in our lives

And a new song on our lips,

To walk in victory every day,

O Lord, we long for this

Come, O God, and touch us

Ignite us once again,

So we will burn with holy zeal,

More than we had back then

Fill us with your spirit, Lord,

And we shall be renewed,

So joy can be restored to us

With brand-new hope in you.
