Lyrics
Wake the dead, wake the dead
Take up the call and carry His commission
Wake the dead, wake the dead
Don't be content and just walk away

Wake up!
There's a job to be done
You've got a calling that you haven't begun
For too long you've been coasting along
You think salvation is the end of it all
(The fields are ready but the workers few)
You're not heeding the call
(It's time the body starts to shout the news)
And wake the world up to God's invitation

[Chorus 1]
Wake the dead, wake the dead
Take up the call and carry His commission
Wake the dead, wake the dead
Don't be content and just walk away
There's too much to do to just walk away

Darkness blinds a new generation
Searching for its place
Banished by their own choice of living
From His shining grace
(But even with such hardened hearts)
God cares that they will be found
(He had a plan right from the start)
To break their chains by His testimony

[Chorus 2]
Wake the dead, wake the dead
Don't be complacent with your own salvation
Wake the dead, wake the dead
Got to lead the lost searching for their way

[Repeat Chorus 1]
[Repeat Chorus 2]
