Sacred


I love the song "Sacred" on Caedmon's Call's latest album Overdressed. It speaks of celebrating and enjoying every day life, even with its mundane tasks. Below are the lyrics. I have added some italics to the phrases that really echo my heart.
this house is a good mess
it’s the proof of life
no way would I trade jobs
but it don’t pay overtime

I’ll get to the laundry
I don’t know when
I’m saying a prayer tonight
cause tomorrow it starts again


could it be that everything is sacred?
and all this time
everything I’ve dreamed of
has been right before my eyes

the children are sleeping
but they’re running through my mind
the sun makes them happy
and the music makes them unwind

my cup runneth over
and I worry about the stain
teach me to run to You
like they run to me for every little thing


when I forget to drink from you
I can feel the banks harden
Lord, make me like a stream
to feed the garden


wake up, little sleeper
the Lord, God Almighty
made your Mama keeper
so rise and shine
rise and shine cause

everything is sacred
and all this time
everything I’ve dreamed of
has been right before my eyes

I love Caedmon's Call, but haven't heard their new album. I'm off to check it out - thank you! Sounds like a great song.

It is a great song, and a terrific album. They probably have a sample of the song on Amazon that you could listen to. I guess I need to learn how to embed songs in my blog. =)
