I was asleep;
In my waking I realized,
His person was in my person,
I awoke and realized the Messiah and I are one.
I was asleep and awoke with his person in my person,
And I realized it is true, we are one, we are.
He is that he is, and I am his and he is in me.
We are one by his faith and his prayer:
“Father make them one even as you and I are one.”
And it is so by his faith and prayer;
We are one by his word.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one comes to the Father but by me.”
We are one, one with the Father, one with the Son,
One with life because He prayed:
“Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”
And it is so by his prayers.
Arise, he says; arise and shine!
Arise and shine and behold His glory!
And it is so, by His faith and his word.
I was asleep and now I am awake.
