The Cave of Adullam

The Cave of Adullam

The Cave of Adullam 1920 1280 Jody Thomae

this cave, my prison
this darkness, my entrapment
I cannot lie here, stay here, die here
here in my prison

wake up, oh heart
wake the dawn with your song
you must live, must beat, must give
give your heart

pray, oh spirit
pray to God are you there
I start to plead, I worship, I need
need to know you’re real

cry out, oh voice
cry for mercy with each sound
I begin to whisper, I speak, I shout
shout bring me out

live, oh soul
live for self and for others
I will have hope, have faith, have growth
growth to overcome
to live again
live again, oh soul
