Asleep on holy ground Lyrics by Michael Card

 

Asleep on holy ground by Michael Card


A stone for a pillow as hard as his head
He slept on holy ground
The dreaming deciever, he drempt of a ladder
With angels up and down
And the ladder was a way
The stairway was a sign
The gates of heaven opened wide
revealing the divine
Asleep on holy ground he lay
Oblivious to the night
Inside his head and heart were full of inexpressible light
Soon he would be confronted by the friend that we most fear
Asleep on holy ground he lay
deceitful blessed seer
The dream that he drempt now transformed to a nightmare
As he wrestled with a man
The unearthly power of his beloved opponent made Jacob understand
That the wrestling was the way
The struggle was the sign
He limped away his lesson learned
Now israel was defined
Chorus:
He limped away on holy ground awakened from the dream
Having learned his costly lesson from the way of the Nazarine
That pain's the path to blessing love will fight us to be found
and God remains a dream to those who sleep on holy ground
Chorus
