From Ezekiel’s vision in Ezekiel 37:1-14; 36:26,27
Words and music by Caroline Cobb.
“This song is meant as a companion piece to the song “Wake Up” from 1 Corinthians. In the vision, God takes Ezekiel to a valley full of dry, bleached bones. They are dead, dead, dead and then God brings them new muscle, sinews, flesh, and then finally the breath of life. This is a recreation. Bringing something long dead back to full life. Although this passage originally refers to God restoring Israel, a “dead” nation, it also prefigures Jesus’ resurrection and God’s power to recreate us when we are dead in sin and dead to God (Romans 8:10-11).” – Caroline
Hearts of stone
Slain and left
In the valley of death
Been dead so long
All the flesh is gone
A mass grave
No one can raise
But you said “live”
And the ground starts to give
And the bones start to rattle
And the darkness lifts
You gave them blood and bone and
Hearts of stone to flesh
You gave them muscle, skin, and
Life within the breath
The living breath
