Lyrics

There are places on the Earth that can heal a shattered mind
There are visions in the sunset that can make a grown man cry
And the fragrance of a rose can renew a heart of stone
But these things cannot compare to the good things yet to come

This life is a shadow
This life is a shadow
This life is a shadow of the good things yet to come
Until I reach my destination
And the Rock of my salvation
Until then, this life is a shadow one day gone

I have spent some wondrous days basking in the sun's bright rays
I have drunk the stars till I could drink no more
I have touched an infant child and I have walked the mountains wild
Watched the sun come up on a foreign distant shore
But these things cannot compare to what's waiting for us There
Until then this life is a shadow one day gone

This life is a shadow (one day gone)
This life is a shadow (one day gone)
This life is a shadow of the good things yet to come
Until I reach my destination
And the Rock of my salvation
Until then, this life is a shadow of the Son.

In a time not far away
When the Son returns to stay
The Almighty will wash all our tears away
All the sadness will be gone
The Redeemed will sign their song
When the shadow becomes substance
On that bright eternal day

Until I reach my destination
And the rock of my salvation
Until then, this life is a shadow of the Son.

No one knows what is in store
On that happy distant shore
Where the shadow will be gone forevermore
When the Son will one day rise
Flash the lightning cross the skies
And the angels will ring out in raptured score


Until I reach my destination
And the Rock of my salvation
Until then, this life is a shadow of the Son.

(One day gone) This life is a shadow
(One day gone) This life is a shadow
This life is a shadow of the good things yet to come
Until I reach that destination
And the rock of my salvation

Until then, this life is a shadow one day gone, gone, gone
Until then, this life is a shadow one day gone.
