version A

 

Darkness the shadow of death

They that sat in darkness... the light has come

They that sat in the shadow and the region of death

Light has sprung up..sprung up..

Out of darkness and into the light

Grapple!

And wherever you're from, whatever town that it is...

They need the light, it is the revelation of light! Ooh... Hallelujah!

Wisdom and experience

At a time like this: Life... life now

And keep on, and keep on moving

And keep on moving with the faith

that there's a brighter side somewhere: The Shining City

Red, white and blue

Red, yellow, brown, black and blue

My head, my head, so limited in its finitude

My heart, my heart, which is boundless

in its love for the human family

Be tough enough to fight, tender enough to cry Human enough to make mistakes

and humble enough to admit them

Strong enough to absorb the pain

and resilient enough to bounce back

and keep on and keep on moving

But you must but you must smile through your tears Hahahahahaha!

When all is said and done

And keep on and keep on moving

And keep moving with the faith that there’s a brighter side somewhere

Strong enough to absorb the pain

And resilient enough to bounce back

Tender enough to cry, be tough enough to fight And keep moving with the faith

that there’s a brighter side somewhere

The Shining City, the Shining City

And wherever you’re from,whatever town that it is: They need the light!

Out of darkness and into the light, hallelujah! Because the light, the light, the light!

I get excited, I get excited!

Because the light the light the light! Hahahahahaha! Hahahahahaha!

The light showed up, the light showed up! He who sat in the region

and the shadow of death

and in the midst of darkness

The light, the light, the light, the light!

You know why we’re still here?

The light, the light, the light, the light!

You know why we’re still kickin’?

The light, the light, the light, the light!

You know why we’re still speakin’?

The light, the light, the light, the light!

It is the revelation of light-a,

from Genesis, the revelation,

It is the revelation of light,

penetrating darkness and setting man free! Hallelujah!!!
