This is about that Light that beckons, whether
it comes as hope, faith, promise, or inspiration.
It is the Ever-Present Light of Spirit.
It only seems distant when we first discover it.

LIGHT IN THE DISTANCE

I saw a Light in the distance.
It shone like a beacon across the Sea.
It twinkled and glowed with sparkling insistence.
Oh, is it true ? Oh, could it be ?
Is that Light shining for me ?

I heard a song, wafted on wind.
I heard a music, lifted and free...
fading a moment, then rising again.
Oh, is it true ? Oh, could it be ?
Is that Light shining for me ?

Chorus
Oh what a joy ! What a lift to the heart !
Oh what a comfort to the soul !
Twinkling Light, and the Songmaster's Art,
warming the lonely and cold.

Look for the Light, aglow in the distance.
Listen for music, lilting and free.
These coax us on, with loving insistence.
Oh, is it true ? Oh, could it be,
calling to you, and to me ?

Wait, and you'll hear, a soft reply,
drifting as light as snowflakes fall.
It whispers the Truth, blown through the sky.
Oh yes ! It's true, the music calls ...
and the Light shines for us all !
Yes - the Light shines for us all !

Chorus
Oh what a joy ! What a lift to the heart !
Oh what a comfort to the soul !
Twinkling Light, and the Songmaster's Art,
warming the lonely and cold.
Yes, oh yes ! - The Music calls -
and the Light shines for us all !
The Light shines for us all !
