Awake My Soul

I've been a fan of Mumford & Sons for a while and have probably listened to the album...mmm...maybe 1,000 times? Maybe not, but a whole lot. The song that inspired the title of today's post is currently my most repeated song. I think it's because the lyrics align so much with where I am.

I have no idea if the band knows the Lord, but many of their songs have some Scriptural undertone. Regardless, they stir my affections for Him since I do see the Truth behind the lyrics.

Anyway, here's the song in a super fun video...love the Golden with his ball. Enjoy. :)



I also love this video. If it doesn't load it immediately, look for Goodbye India: Awake My Soul. The Indian kiddos singing with the band at the beginning is the best part if you don't want to watch the whole thing.

In case you don't understand the lyrics, they are:

How fickle my heart and how woozy my eyes
I struggle to find any truth in your lies
And now my heart stumbles on things I don't know
This weakness I feel I must finally show

Lend me your hand and we'll conquer them all
But lend me your heart and I'll just let you fall
Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep, totally free
Har har, har har, har har, har har

In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love, you invest your life
In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love, you invest your life

Awake my soul, awake my soul
Awake my soul
You were made to meet your maker
Awake my soul, awake my soul
Awake my soul
You were made to meet your maker
You were made to meet your maker
