Justin Rosolino – Come Sweet Day lyrics

11 hours and 13 minutes more
'Til emancipation's bells will start to ring
'Cause the law they finally passed
Hallelujah, free at last
So tomorrow makes a man from what had once been property

[Chorus:]
So come, sweet day
And free me with your ray
For you alone I'll wait

I have heard that in the western world
There's a sense of time that some call cavalier
Well I guess the ease of pleasure
Makes it harder to remember
Just how it feels to see this world through hopeful tears
Hopeful tears

[Chorus:]
So come, sweet day
And free me with your ray
For you alone I'll wait
Come, sweet day

Come, sweet day
Come and free me with your ray
For you alone I'll wait

Tonight I'll scale the highest mountain
And when I get there, I'll climb the tallest tree
And when I get there, I'll raise my hands towards heaven
Until I feel the light of morning touch my fingertips
And set me free

[Chorus:]
Oh come, sweet day
Come and free me with your ray
For you alone I'll wait
Come, sweet day

Come, sweet day
Come and free me with your ray
For you alone
You alone, you alone

Come, sweet day
