Until He opens up our eyes
We’ll remain in pagan ways,
Believing that all of our philosophies
Can sustain our living days.
Until He reaches out to us
We’ll continue in our sin,
Believing that we are free indeed
But so empty from within.
Until He gives us revelation
Of the Lord Jesus Christ,
We’ll continue to believe
That our religion is always right.
Until He extends His arm
All our works are done in vain,
Because salvation is in Him alone
And not in any other name.
Until He wakes us up
From our spiritual of slumber,
We’ll continue with our fantasies
Instead of seeing His awe and wonder.
Until He reveals Himself
We cannot surely believe,
Because it’s by hearing the precious word of God
That our heart begins to see.
Until He knocks on the door of our heart
We can be hardened in every way,
By the bitter outcomes of society
And the troubles in every day.
Until He shows us His pure light
In darkness we shall walk,
When our words are laden with insincerity
And deception when we talk.
Because when we have that man-pleasing spirit
In order to simply be accepted,
In doing this we don’t realise
That by God we are rejected.
Until He sincerely heals us
From all our heartache and our pain,
All man-made solutions will be temporary
Where disappointment can remain.
It’s by His mercy and His grace
That enlightenment enters our pores,
As we humbly realise and do repent
When He opens up His door.
