Where I was walking seemed such brightness,
But the crack in the door was all my light,
I thought I saw so much before me,
But I was stumbling in the night.
Then in the lightning of a broken-hearted moment
I glimpsed the Father?s waiting face,
And through the blackness of my place
I could see heaven.

Then one day you came home in the glory,
I couldn?t look at you ? they shone like a mirror your eyes,
Then he poured his love out through you,
And like a wave it came and took me by surprise.
Then I felt the waters of the river that I?d dreamed of,
And through the pain of my disgrace,
In the brightness of your face
I could see heaven.

Then one day the man he started speaking.
He wouldn?t let up until he?d showed me what was wrong.
Then he laid a weight upon my shoulders,
Then he helped me carry it along,
Then I felt the waters of the river that I?d dreamed of,
I let it wash me in its flow,
And though he laid me very low
I could see heaven.
