When it's darkness all around it's easier to see the
Light.
When it's darkness all around it's easier to see the
Light.
But the when Son comes up it's power destroys the night.

When you wake up in the morning, you shake your weary
Head.
When you wake up in the morning, you shake your weary
Head.
You oughta talk to the father before you get outa bed.

Well, the problem that you have is that...
(Instrumental)

Man is born to trouble, it stays until he dies.
Man is born to trouble, it stays until he dies.
If he's patient and forgiving it reflects in his eyes.

Where goes the strength of man, it comes and then it's
Gone.
Where goes the strength of man, it comes and then it's
Gone.
You lay him in the ground but his spirit lingers on.

What is it in your life that seems so worthwhile,
What makes you laugh what makes you smile?
Is there a special person that you're leaning toward?
Even if you're alone, you've got the Lord.

Well, the problem that we have is that we don't know
What to do.
Well, the problem that we have is that we don't know

What to do.
We stumble and fall but God is gonna get us through.

What profits a man who gains the world and loses his
Soul?
What profits a man who gains the world and loses his
Soul?
If he takes nothing with him and the grave can be so
Cold.

Will you rise up laughing on the resurrection day?
Will you rise up laughing on the resurrection day?
Or will you stand at the throne wishing you had learned
To pray.

So listen to these words, these are thing to ponder
Upon
So listen to these words, these are thing to ponder
Upon
'Cause you won't hear me singing when I am dead and
Gone.

How does a man find out why he is here?
How can a man find out why he is here?
Who knows the value of the circles and can make his
Meaning clear?

When there's darkness all around you reach out toward
The light.
When there's darkness in the world, people reach out
Toward the light.
When the Son comes back, his power will destroy the
Night.
