Before Morning

15May10

The past few weeks I’ve been wrestling with a lot inside.  There have been many times that I’ve wanted to completely give up.  Wednesday morning I heard this song on the radio as I was driving to the train station…  It was just what I needed to hear.  The Romans 8 theme is pretty strong, which makes the song even more comforting.  I still have wrestling to do – but it’s okay, because morning is coming.

Do you wonder why you have to
feel the things that hurt you?
If there’s a God who loves you,
where is He now?

Maybe, there are things you can’t see
and all those things are happening
to bring a better ending –
some day, somehow, you’ll see, you’ll see…

Would dare you, would you dare to believe,
that you still have a reason to sing?
‘Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling,
can’t compare to the joy that’s coming!

So hold on, you’ve got to wait for the light!
Press on and just fight the good fight –
because the pain you’ve been feeling,
it’s just the dark before the morning.

My friend, you know how this all ends –
and you know where you’re going,
you just don’t know how you get there…

So just say a prayer –

And hold on –

‘Cause there’s good for those who love God.
Life is not a snapshot, it might take a little time,
but you’ll see the bigger picture.

Would dare you, would you dare to believe,
that you still have a reason to sing?
‘Cause the pain you’ve been feeling,
can’t compare to the joy that’s coming!

So hold on, you’ve got to wait for the light –
Press on and just fight the good fight!
Because the pain that you’ve been feeling,
it’s just the dark before the morning.

Once you feel the weight of glory,
all your pain will fade to memory…
Once you feel the weight of glory,
all your pain will fade to memory…

Would dare you, would you dare to believe,
that you still have a reason to sing?
‘Cause the pain you’ve been feeling,
can’t compare to the joy that’s coming!

Would dare you, would you dare, to believe,
that you still have a reason to sing?
‘Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling,
can’t compare to the joy that’s coming!

Come on, you’ve got to wait for the light –
Press on and just fight the good fight!
Because the pain that you’ve been feeling –
it’s just the hurt before the healing…
The pain that you’ve been feeling –
it’s just the dark before the morning.

    Yes, love… yes!
    Press on, keep going, because… I like the Spanish better, “vale la pena”.
    You will pass through to see the dawn!
