Light Plays Across a Summer Day: Joyce Lancaster

Light falls upon the streams and rivers
To allow the heart to sing
Merriment to allow us to dream
Of the wondrous thing

Of birth of hope and to dream
All men and women wish for peace
In times of trouble
And days of reckoning

Songbirds lift the heart above
The gloom and the doom
The heart yearns to be free
Of all bad things

Hope brings us eternal peace
The light allows us to see the good in all
It sheds the darkness that is there
So we are free from all harm

Darkness is not our freedom
But our shackles
The light is beauty
That we see
