See The Light

I know this road is gettin’ hard

I heard you say it’s overwhelming

I said I’d never be too far

And I meant that from the heart

I found these song lyrics today while making my new Tobymac playlist on Youtube.

Yes, I can play At Calvary on the piano from a hymnal and also have my hearing impaired from the front row of a Tobymac concert.

This song reminded me of some 20-year-olds who are facing the elements of the world right now.

Their boots are worn, their coats are torn, and some are nearly beat down from exposure…and it breaks me.

I don’t know what to do most of the time, but I will lift them up in prayer until hopefully, they can See The Light.

And I send them songs that say what I want them to know.

Imagine a person on a quest, but they are walking alone. Is anyone thinking about them or waiting for their return?

Do they push through the elements because they know there is someone waiting at the end?

I hope they know there is…

Lift up your head, to where your help comes from;

your help comes from the Lord.


I know this road is gettin’ hard

I heard you say it’s overwhelming

I said I’d never be too far

And I meant that from the heart

I see the mountain gettin’ higher

I see it stackin’ up against you

I always said you were a fighter

But you’ve got your doubts tonight

But I’m here to remind you

It don’t matter where you come from

I know we can get through this

It might feel it’s been so long

But we keep on keepin’ on (keepin’ on)

It might feel like an uphill climb

Always some kind of battle (battle)

But you got more than you on your side

And we gon’ see the light (see the light)

We gon’ see the light (see the light)

We gon’ see the light (see the light)

You and me, yeah, you and me

We gon’ see the light

Some things will never be the same

Some things are only for a season (season)

And just the thought of letting go

Well, it’s brought you to your knees (to your knees, to your knees)

Oh, but if you can make it, you can make it through the ni-ight

I can promise that the sun is gonna ri-ise

You wake up just a little bit stronger

So hold on just a little bit longer

‘Cause it don’t matter where you come from

I know we can get through this (ooh)

It might feel like it’s been so long

But we keep on keepin’ on (keepin’ on) (ooh)

It might feel like an uphill climb

Always some kind of battle (battle)

But you got more than you on your side

And we gon’ see the light (see the light)

We gon’ see the light (see the light)

We gon’ see the light (see the light)

You and me, yeah, you and me

We gon’ see the light (we gon’ see)

We gon’ see the light (see the light)

We gon’ see the light (ho, ah-oh ah-oh ah-oh)

You and me, yeah, you and me (you and me)

So go on and lift your hands up to where your help is comin’ from

And let your burdens, let ’em fade away (fade away, fade away)

So go on and lift your hands up to where your help is comin’ from

And let your burdens, let ’em fade away

(We gon’ see the light, we gon’ see the light)

So go on and lift your hands up to where your help is comin’ from

And let your burdens, let ’em fade away

(We gon’ see the light)

So go on and lift your hands up to where your help is comin’ from

And let your burdens, let ’em fade away

‘Cause it don’t matter where you come from

I know we can get through this

You got more than you on your side

And we gon’ see the light

We gon’ see the light
