Follow Benjamin Daniel here. This song will appear as part of a new two part full length titled “Shaping Season” with Vol. 1 out this fall and Vol. 2 out summer 2019.
Failure is an awful thing.
Have I lost the strength to sing
songs that point my friends toward peace?
Servant in despondent slough
sinks into the sadness now.
I don’t know how I got here.
I fall asleep inside my shadow
and I don’t know how to get home.
So I glamorize the darkness and say,
“This is how I’ll be known.”
But I really want to get home.
Have I the ability?
It’s easier to be a victim.
My mind’s a shadow,
my body’s a lost hope,
but faith is the substance of a hope that’s still unseen.
I can’t see what I believe,
but I won’t grieve.
I still believe You.
I fall asleep inside my shadow,
but I’m done pretending I’m alone.
And if this body keeps on fading, I won’t fall away.
I’ll keep on until I get home.
