jacob’s dream lyrics – jason upton

jacob really longed to be a hero
all i really wanted was a friend
i’m the way, the life, the truth
so tell me jacob when will the lying end?
and does the striving make you strong?
because when i came to love on you
you fought me till the dawn

finally jacob’s lying down
and while he sleeps i will dream
of a generation not known for their crowns,
or success, but a king…
who was not so much as interested in crowds, or
pleasing men, but knowing me

ch:
i have given jacob’s generation the key of david, intimacy
to open up the doorway to the nations, and release
revelation, of intimacy, with me

jacob had a dream for all the ages
jacob had a drive to build a nation
but the fighting is in vain
if your only aim is to build your own great name

because my dream’s not what you do
jacob will you dream for me
the way that i have dreamed for you

ch:
i have given jacob’s generation the key of david, intimacy
to open up the doorway to the nations, and release
revelation, of intimacy, with me
