Glorious Day - Baltimore Post-ExaminerBaltimore Post-Examiner

Glorious Day

Can you see the golden meadows ?

Can you hear the children sing ?

Are you trapped inside the moment ?

No water left inside the spring ?

Where were you when Rome was burning ?

Lost inside some secret cell ?

Too far gone to think of heaven ?

Resigned to live inside your hell ?

There’s a glimpse that slips through the dark somehow

There’s a light that cuts through the grey

You can lay your burdens upon him now

I can see a Glorious Day

Not a thing can kill the sadness

Not a thing can ease the pain

If you’re honest in the long run

You’ll see the evil’s had his reign

Look at all he’s taken from you

All your dignity and hope

Still deep inside you sense a longing

While clinging tight on to your rope


Forget the lies, you’re not defeated

Embrace the Way, the Truth, the Life

Look to the sky a bright tomorrow

Is shining for you in the night
