A New Dawn

I hear a wailing
I hear a heart breaking
Something in the atmosphere
is changing
and I can hear souls shaking
Someone in Him is changing
and their heart
is learning to beat

I hear a wind howling
and the trees begin to shake
The leaves begin to tremble
and my soul begins to quake
I can sense a new beginning
I can feel some new degree
I see something breaking
falling, I see the debris

I hear the air crying
and the skies begin to shift
an old life is dying
a new life dawn's swift
I want to cry out
I can barely resist
I take my hoop and dance
Come, restoration, come!
