Hidden in the lyrics... hidden in the life...

Reactions: 

I'm listening to music as I ponder the passing of Nelson Mandela, reflecting on his life and how he lived, a man just like me, with foibles and faults but also a man that from what I have read pondered on the word of God and on his release acted on this. For this we are grateful. Let us cherish the best of his life as a country.

Now it struck me that often a song that I like has hidden in the lyrics words from God... this is one such. By the way the singer is from what I have read also a Christian.

In a world of desire,
oh who would come and catch you when you fall
in the wind and the fire?
oh who would come to save you?


High above any danger…
Locked inside the tower of your mind,
dreams are veiled; passion blinded.
Safe from fear and fire.

Oh who will find me?
In your midnight eyes, I see a summer sunrise.
Fly far beyond these silver winter skies.
I see a beautiful life. Oh, come and get away.

Do you see the horizon?
Walk upon the water, you will find
all is still and yet alive
in the morning light.

Oh who will find me?
In your midnight eyes, I see a summer sunrise.
Fly far beyond these silver winter skies.
I see a beautiful life. Oh, come and get away.

Dance dance in the morning light.
Open your darkened eyes.
Hey, hey, it’s a beautiful day.
It’ll be ok. It’ll be ok.

Take a look, spin around, this is where I find you… where the roses bloom.
Leave your cares, leave your fears, leave them all behind you… yeayah.
It’s a beautiful day in the city of shining light.
It’s a beautiful day. This is where I find you… yeayah


Jesus walked on water and he is the Light and he promises that we will be with him in the City of Light one day.
Just as Jesus gives us hope for a life everlasting we pray that Madiba's life wil inspire others too.


So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 
2 Corinthians 4:16-18
