Sleepless Night

This has become the song of my heart! May it encourage you and comfort you as much as it has me! (Scroll down to play the movie and listen to it as you read the words.)

Another sleepless night
I'm turning in my bed
Long before the red sun rises

In these early hours
I'm falling again
Into the river of my worries

When the river runs away
I find a shelter in your name

Jesus, only light on the shore
Only hope in the storm
Jesus, let me fly to your side
There I would hide, Jesus

Hear my anxious prayer
The beating of my heart
The pulse and the measure of my unbelief
Speak your words to me
Before I come apart
Help me believe in what I cannot see
Before the river runs away
I will call upon your name

Jesus, only light on the shore
Only hope in the storm
Jesus, let me fly to your side
There I would hide, Jesus

Is it just me, or does anyone else have a problem with what we call "christian music" sounding very similar to the sentimental/emotion wrenching worldly music that we would condemn?
