Petra – In The Likeness Of You lyrics

Words and music by John Lawry and John Elefante
Based on Psalm 17:15

In the likeness of You
Recreated, renewed
Let me awake forever
In the likeness
In the likeness of You

Now I lay me down to sleep
My heart and soul are Yours to keep
I close my eyes and try to see
More of You and less of me

Jesus, I'm trusting in You
So while I'm sleeping
Keep me dreaming
Of when I will awake

In the likeness of You
Recreated, renewed
Resurrected by Your righteousness
In Your likeness
In the likeness of You

Men dream of fortune and fame
Making the rules, naming the game
And men dream of things they can hold
Money and power, silver and gold
Jesus, I'm dreaming of You
Take me and melt me, mold me
Until I am complete

In the likeness of You
Recreated, renewed
Resurrected by Your righteousness
In the likeness of You
In the likeness of You
So faithful and true
Let me awake forever in the likeness of You

The likeness of You
I want to be
I want to be like You
In all I say
In all I do

    My meaning? It's scripture! It's from Psalm 17, the 15th Verse. Read the whole chapter to get the proper context. It's King David talking to God, and he says, "As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness."
    It's God's meaning and David's meaning. My opinion? I think it's one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard. I love this song. I used to have the tape this came off of. Please if you can tell me where to get it, again, I will be eternally grateful!
