The Light

     
 

The light within me shineth, the life within me flows

Iíll sing a song of the kingdom and hope the spirit grows

 

There was a man from midnight who lived while on the road

A light was his possession it was a heavy load

He wrapped it all in color but left the binding free

For those who felt the hunger and truly longed to see

 

The rumor soon did travel, the winds they did not fail

And all across the country, the brightness did prevail

The people they did gather their thankfulness to bring

But for the silent witness who did not see a thing

 

Come all you sons and daughters who make the road your life

Who try and live the freedom to rise above this strife

Oh, find the way in wisdom the truth that does not lie

The change is many colors in the beholderís eye

 

The light within me shineth, and the life within me flows

Iíll sing a song of the kingdom and hope the spirit grows

Iíll sing a song of the kingdom


Tarkio
