I have heard that you are swift to bless the seeker,
And I believe that You will hear the constant cry;
So I will call until I know I’ve had an answer,
I need Your power Lord!
As Jacob wrestled so I’ll wrestle with Your angel,
And though I’m weary, I will not be overcome,
For You have given me a passion for Your kingdom,
O let Your glory fall!
I won’t let go,
I won’t let go until You bless me.
I won’t take no for an answer,
Jesus I won’t let go.
I have heard that You show mercy to a nation,
And I believe that You give power to Your church;
So now I’m asking You to open up the heavens,
Pour out Your mercy, Lord!
For Your gospel to be lived among Your people,
For Your miracle of healing on the streets;
For the government to fear the Lord Almighty,
We need Your power, Lord!
I’m not ungrateful for the blessings You have given,
But I can see the need around me;
I’m not ashamed to say I need all that You have,
So Father, hear me knocking,
See me holding out my hands to You.
For a hunger that will overcome my weakness,
For a love that will not seek it’s own reward;
For my life to make a difference in this nation,
I need Your power, Lord!
