I never did like the word mediocre
I never wanted it to be said of me, oh, no
Just point me to the top and I'ld go over, over
Looking for the very best that could be
So.. what is this thing I see
Going on inside of me?
When it comes to the grace of God
Sometimes it's like

CHORUS:
I'm playing Gameboy standing in the middle of the Grand Canyon
I'm eating candy sittin' at a gourmet feast
I'm wading in a puddle when I could be swimming in the ocean
Tell me what's the deal with me
(I know the time has come for me to)
Wake up and see the glory

Every star in the sky tells his story, oh
And every breeze is singing his song
All of creation is imploring
Hey, come see this grand phenomenon
The wonder of His grace
Should take my breath away
I miss so many things when I'm consumed with

CHORUS

ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaaaa
(under words)
How could I trivialize it ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
This awesome gift of God's grace ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Once I have come to realize it ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaaaa
I should be speechless and amazed

Wake up and see the glory
Open your eyes and take it in
Wake up and be amazed
Over and over again

Wake up and see the glory ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Open your eyes and take it in ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba
Wake up and be amazed ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaaaa
Over and over again

God's love is coming to you and to me
Wake up, wake up
Open your eyes
Yeah, over and over again
Wake up!
Common take it in.
