aretha franklin – beams of heaven (some day) lyrics
beams of heaven as i go,
through this wilderness below.
guide my feet in peaceful way,
turn my midnights into days.
when in darkness, i would grope,
faith always sees a star of hope.
and soon from all life’s grief and danger,
i shall be free some day.
i do not know how long ’twill be,
nor what the future holds for me;
but this i know, if jesus leads,
i shall get home some day.
often times my sky is clear,
joy abounds without a tear.
though a day so bright begun,
clouds may hide tomorrow’s sun.
there’ll be a day that’s always bright,
a day that never yields to night;
and in its light the streets of glory,
i shall behold some day.
harder yet may be the fight,
right may often yield to might.
wickedness awhile may reign,
satan’s cause may seem to gain.
there is a god that rules above,
sith hand of power and heart of love.
if i am right, he’ll fight my battle,
i shall have peace some day.
burdens now may crush me down,
disappointments all around.
troubles speak in mournful sigh,
sorrow through a tear stained eye.
there is a world where pleasure reigns,
no mourning soul shall roam its plains,
and to that land of peace and glory,
i want to go some day.
