A Smile in the Nick of Time





Farther Along

Farther along we’ll know all about it
Farther along we’ll understand why
Cheer up my brothers, live in the sunshine
We’ll understand this, all by and by

Tempted and tried, I wondered why
The good man died, the bad man thrives
And Jesus cries because he loves em’ both
We’re all cast-aways in need of ropes
Hangin’ on by the last threads of our hope
In a house of mirrors full of smoke
Confusing illusions I’ve seen

Where did I go wrong, I sang along
To every chorus of the song
That the devil wrote like a piper at the gates
Leading mice and men down to their fates
But some will courageously escape
The seductive voice with a heart of faith
While walkin’ that line back home

So much more to life than we’ve been told
It’s full of beauty that will unfold
And shine like you struck gold my wayward son
That deadweight burden weighs a ton
Go down into the river and let it run
And wash away all the things you’ve done
Forgiveness alright

Chorus

Still I get hard pressed on every side
Between the rock and a compromise
Like the truth and pack of lies fightin’ for my soul
And I’ve got no place left go
Cause I got changed by what I’ve been shown
More glory than the world has known
Keeps me ramblin’ on

Skipping like a calf loosed from its stall
I’m free to love once and for all
And even when I fall I’ll get back up
For the joy that overflows my cup
Heaven filled me with more than enough
Broke down my levee and my bluff
Let the flood wash me

And one day when the sky rolls back on us
Some rejoice and the others fuss
Cause every knee must bow and tongue confess
That the son of god is forever blessed
His is the kingdom, we’re the guests
So put your voice up to the test
Sing Lord, come soon!
 
My good friend Caryn-(one of the "good friends" you know online and have never met; but without whom you could not live and thrive.) saw my Facebook status today which went something like this: "Did you ever have a morning when you wanted to hang a sign over you that says :
Don't mess with me; I've had a BAAaaaad night!"

And she sent me a link to a blog called  "Fearfully-Wonderfully..." to a post by the name of this song and I just had to also post this song for you here as well as the lyrics (because if you're deaf like me; lyrics help an awful lot!).  Caryn is good at wiping a tear and bringing a smile just when you need it most...(and believe me, about five minutes ago, I was in sore need!
I hope if you're struggling today, that this song will bring you the encouragement--and the smile--that you need...and if you don't need it today, bookmark this page--and come back on the day when you do.  Blessings, Peeps.
(And thank you, girlfriend.)
