Michael W. Smith – Someday (Set The Children Free) lyrics

Music: Michael W. Smith
Words: David Mullen and Michael W. Smith

I know there's a prayer flowing from
The longing for the healing to come
Someday no more dark, aching nights
Someday I will open your eyes
The light will come and I will set you free
Sometimes there's a joy in the pain
Sometimes peace that can't be explained
Some find a longing there in their souls
Someday I will make all things whole
I promise to set the children free.

Someday you'll find your place in the sun
Someday when all hearts beat as one
You'll sing with the heart of a child
Someday when the river runs wild
My Father comes to set His children free.

Some say it's a vision
Some say it's just a dream
I say it's a promise
A covenant, a destiny
I will come to set my children free.

Someday what the young ones have dreamed
Someday all you've hoped and believed
Will be, you will all understand
The longing placed inside every man
Overcomes the world and sets the children free
And I will come to set my children free.
