(Matthew 26:36-46)

Our lives up to this point have lead to this
A garden in the dark, a deadly kiss (Matthew 36:47-49)
If you want to follow me
We'll walk into suffering
It's this act that will distinguish us

My disciples, those I've chosen (John 15:16)
Don't listen to the sirens
Don't you know that I would never lead you astray
Tie yourself to the mast and cover your ears with wax
And
Keep your gaze on me, for God's sake stay awake

Sometimes you have to close your eyes to see.
Sometimes to walk you have to get down on your knees.
All I ask is that you pray
All I ask is that you stay awake
But your dreams betray me

My disciples, those I've chosen
Don't listen to the sirens
Don't you know that I would never lead you astray
Tie yourself to the mast and cover your ears with wax
And
Keep your gaze on me, for God's sake stay awake

Wake up.

Are you resting? Are you still asleep?

Wake Up, O Sleeper (Ephesians 5:14)
Wake Up and say a prayer
Wake Up, O Sleeper
Are you my betrayer?
Wake up, O Sleeper
Wake up, O Sleeper
Incomprehensible, Incomprehensible
