Faith

Faith Hill is one of my favorite female singers.  Since I heard her first CD, Take Me As I Am (1993), she continues to impress me with the quality of the lyrics she selects/writes.

Last night I got out Breathe, and the first track I wanted to hear was the last track.  I don't think it was released as a single (sometimes the best ones aren't), but it stands out as one of my favorites.  This song works on many levels for me, especially right now, for many reasons.  Because I Believe,

There Will Come A Day  (Bill Luther, Aimee Mayo, Chris Lindsey)

It's not easy trying to understand
How the world can be so cold, stealing the souls of man
Cloudy skies rain down on all your dreams
You wrestle with the fear and doubt
Sometimes it's hard but you gotta believe

Chorus:
There's a better place, where our Father waits
And every tear He'll wipe away
The darkness will be gone, the weak shall be strong
Hold on to your faith

There will come a day, there will come a day 
Wars are raging, lives are scattered
Innocence is lost, and hopes are shattered
The old are forgotten, the children are forsaken
In this world we're living in
Is there anything sacred?

There will come a day, there will come a day
The song will ring out, down those golden streets
The voices of earth with the angels will sing "Hallelujah"
Every knee will bow, sin will have no trace
In the glory of His amazing grace
Every knee will bow, sin will have no trace
In the glory of His amazing grace
There will come a day, there will come a day
Oooh there will come a day
I know there's coming a day, coming a day

Thank you Robin!  The pic is one of mine, taken on my deck at home.  It was one of those moments when I went outside, took one look, and ran back in to grab my camera.  It's one of my favorites.  I got lucky with that shot.
