God is The Light~



How great the wonders of the heavens
And the timeless beauty of the night
How great..
then how great the Creator?

And its stars like priceless jewels
Far beyond the reach of kings
Bow down for the shepherd guiding him home.

But how many eyes are closed..
To the wonder of this night?

Like pearls, hidden deep..
beneath a dark Stream of desires.

But like dreams vanish with the call to prayer
And the dawn extinguishes night
here too are signs.

God is the Light
God is the Light

How great the beauty of the Earth
and the creatures Who dwell on her.
How great..
then how great the Creator?

As its mountains pierce the clouds
High above the lives of men
Weeping rivers for thousands of years.

But how many hearts are closed
To the wonders of this sight?

Like birds in a cage,
asleep with closed wings
But like work stops with the call to prayer
And the birds reside..
here too are signs

God is the Light
God is the Light

How great the works of man
and the things he makes
How great..
then how great the Creator?

Though he strives to reach the heavens
He can barely survive
The wars of the world he lives in.

Yet, how many times he’s tried,
Himself to immortalise?
Like his parents before him in the Garden of Eden
But like the sun sets with the call to prayer
And surrenders to the night here too are signs

God is the Light Everlasting
God is the Light Everlasting
