Asleep in the Light

Marc Martel is lead singer for the Canadian Christian band Downhere. He has recently created quite a stir with his audition for the Queen Extravaganza with his astonishing cover of Somebody to Love.

He has also done a version of the late Keith Green’s Asleep in the Light. Keith Green was one of the early contemporary Christian singers, but more, he was a prophet to the church before he tragically died in a plane crash.

Our church’s current message series is on Biblical revival from the book of  Nehemiah.  This song captures the plea of the Lord for dulled hearts to be sharpened by His glory,  blind eyes to see the reality of His consuming call, hearts to feel the burden of  taking His gospel to the lost peoples of the world  If you never heard Keith Green, this is as close as you can get.

  1. I had never heard of this guy but I was around to hear Keith Green and it is amazing how much he sounds like him – the inflections on the words are exactly the same. This song and its message has always stirred me. I hope EVERYONE will hear it!
