This is What the Light Can Do

In the dark you see a light as it begins to flicker on
In the distance you can hear the melody of some sweet song
And in your heart where darkness took residence
Where you lost loved ones because you were hesitant
it begins to feel slightly less cold

You want to shout but you only know how to whisper
But your voice is growing strong and slightly crisper
Maybe soon you will be screaming some song of praise
Of how God brought a light to your darkened days
You begin to feel slightly more bold

You need to stand but your knees want to crumble
Your balance is stilted and you begin to stumble
Grace will wash your filth and give your beard a shave
Maybe it will protect you from the demons blade
The cave walls have begun to mold

Reach out your hand so you don’t drown in darkness
We must know that we are more than an empty carcass
After all these years all we knew was how to crawl
Maybe it’s time for us to finally learn how to walk
The years will catch us and make us old

If we hurry perhaps we can catch a glimpse of the Son
Before the meteors hit and the Rapture is done
We dance in the clouds and each others hands we’re holding
Judas will watch us with eyes sad and longing
Your greatest story finally told.

In the light the darkness turns into a coward
In your hard soul the hard soil will produce a flower
It shall grow and bloom and choke the darkness
we are more than just an empty carcass
It begins to feel slightly less cold.

    I agree with Amy – HOPE here. No easy answers – just fickers of light and promises of more.

    I always love your lyrics.

    RU bringing Jesus in the Office today? And may I borrow it for a week
