Finding the C.S. Lewis Song

C.S. Lewis has long been one of my favorite authors and I look forward to having long conversations with him in heaven. So when I ran across this song, well, I just had to pass it along. The Artist is Brook Fraser, a New Zealander. The lyrics follow the youtube video. The first stanza is actually a loose quote from (I think) Mere Christianity.

“C.S. Lewis Song”

If I find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy,
I can only conclude that I was not made for here
If the flesh that I fight is at best only light and momentary,
then of course I’ll feel nude when to where I’m destined I’m compared
……..
[CHORUS:]
Speak to me in the light of the dawn
Mercy comes with the morning
I will sigh and with all creation groan as I wait for hope to come for me

Am I lost or just less found? On the straight or on the roundabout of the wrong way?
is this a soul that stirs in me, is it breaking free, wanting to come alive?
Cos my comfort would prefer for me to be numb
And avoid the impending birth of who I was born to become

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE:]
For we, we are not long here
Our time is but a breath, so we better breathe it
And I, I was made to live, I was made to love, I was made to know you
Hope is coming for me
Hope, He’s coming for me
Hope, is coming for me
Hope is coming

[CHORUS]
Speak to me in the light of the dawn
Mercy comes with the morning
I will sigh and with all creation groan as I wait for hope to come for me

for me, for me, for me
