Promise Land – Before The Dawn lyrics

It’s the middle of the night and everyone’s a sleep.
She decides it’s time.
Feelings of hopelessness surround her.
She feels like she can no longer go on.
For tomorrow’s light - For the day.

[Chorus 1]
For tomorrow’s light – The sun will rise again
In only a moment if she'd see
For tomorrow’s light – The sun she will see no more
It’s only a moment – Before the Dawn

[Verse 2:]
She writes a letter and she sets it on the floor.
“Dear mom, I love you. I’m so sorry... It’s not your fault"
She goes towards the closet –
Pulls out her own demise just moments before she dies.
Before tomorrow’s light – Before the Day

[Chorus 2:]
Before tomorrow’s light – The sun would have rose again.
In only a moment if she'd seen.
For tomorrow’s light – The sun she will see no more.
It’s only a moment – Before the Dawn – Before the Dawn.

Did she ever know? Did she realize there is grace?
Her death was not meant to be.
For there was a way – The Son you see –
Was standing there calling out:
“The hope you seek is found in Me.
I am the risen Son, before the Dawn, The Great I am
Before the Dawn. I am – Before the Dawn”
