"Draw Near" as written by John Reuben Zappin, Todd V. Collins and Grant Ellis Harrison....
Death whispers words of defeat in my ear
My God I draw near, my God I draw near

God of creation here I stand
I've left Babylon to find out who I am
I've traveled I've struggled I've failed in vain
My own ability will never see eternal gain
God of creation it's you whom I seek
Lord I feel strapped and tied down and my strength is weak
Oh Lord when I cry out please hear what I speak
Bring life to my body awaken this sleep

Death whispers words of defeat in my ear
My God I draw near, my God I draw near

When all vanishes and I stand in this place to face the truth for what it is
With no human escape to hide behind just my soul and God and I find it mind blowing
Knowin' that humanity and a mere mortal man like me
Can have my slate cleaned of mistakes and the chance to put on immortality
Even though darkness has hardened us in deception and spoken otherwise
Man I refuse to take in that nonsense, and I refuse to buy into these lies
These lies of pain, these lies of shame, these lies of complete dysfunction
This lie of hopelessness that will make a person feel like they're nothing
This lie that will make me feel like my struggle is one too much to fix'n
Isn't that what darkness wants for me to play the role of a victim
But I'm a child of light and no longer am I bound by slavery
I say oh death were is your sting
And oh Hades where's your victory?

Hear my cry oh God
Attend to my prayer
From the end of the earth I will cry to you
When my heart's overwhelmed I will cry to you
Leave it to the rock that is higher than I
For you have been a shelter for me
I will abide in your time forever
My God I draw near, my God I draw near

Death whispers words of defeat in my ear
My God I draw near, my God I draw near
