Oh that I would dwell in the place of eternal happiness forever,
leaving my sorrows behind;
living my days filled with an endless ever growing love,
leaving the darkness behind.
Oh how the glow brings all the warm feelings,
the love, the friendship, the light;
ever erasing the shadows of darkness away,
oh so gentle, but with such glorious might.
I will ne’er give in to my darkness,
no anger or sorrow dwells here;
I will not live long in the shadows,
I will not live a life filled with fear.
I will rise up and fight the great battle,
the light in me will grow strong and shine bright;
I’ll face the enemy when it is needed,
God is with me every day and each night.
My Spirit will be ever joyful,
for it walks alongside of our Lord;
I will shelter inside when it’s called for,
with Gods gifts I’ll never grow bored.
The dance will go on through the ages,
light chasing the darkness away;
oh let your Spirits be joyful,
reach inside, let your light shine away.
