Petra – Sleeping Giant lyrics

Words by Bob Hartman
Based on Romans 13:11, Isaiah 60:1

Whoa, sleeping the night away
Darkness enclosing the world so desperate for day
We're under the spell of disunity
When will this giant awake and stand and be free
Now the hour has come
To awaken and redeem the time given to the night
Curse this darkness and stand in the light

(Chorus)
Can you hear the alarm echo down the hall
The sleeping giant gets a wake-up call
Awake from your sleep 'cause it's time to stand tall
The sleeping giant gets a wake-up call
The sleeping giant gets a wake-up call

Whoa, been sleeping so long, yeah
How can we hope to discern the right from the wrong?
The gauntlet is thrown in the face of denial
Each time we sleep through an inch we're losing a mile
We will get this rude awakening to reality
And arise in unity


It's been dark for so long night is almost gone
Always darkest before the dawn
Sunlight soon appearing, a new day it will bring
Do you feel it?
