"He Woke Me Up Again"

13 November 2009

By Sufjan Stevens

He was, he was in the churchyard.
My father was in the first part.
He came, he came to my bedroom,
but I was asleep.
And he woke me up again to say:

Halle-, Halle-, Hallelujah
Holy, Holy is the sound.

And I hope, I hope you are tired out.
And I know, I know there is joy endowed.
But I was asleep,
And he woke me up again,
And he woke me up again to say…

Hold on, hold on to your old ways
Or put off, put off every old face.
And I know, I know you are changed out.
And I hope, I hope you’re arranged out.
But I’m still asleep,
And you woke me up again.
And I’m still asleep,
But you woke me up to leave.
