I woke in the dark
as the morning star,
winking its goodbye
to let the glow in the east
come and splinter the night
into a thousand little pieces
into orange and golden glow
on the mountain peaks

Dancing with my hope
down the walls of rock and ice and snow
And the day cried its greeting
and my heart woke from slumber
And this voice in the woods
stopped and whispered so strangely
“What are you looking for?”

If you can't see the face
smiling through the morning trees
If you can't hear the voice
crying on the wind
If you can't feel the offering of grace
lifted in the early breeze
Let go of this confusion
just let this moment in

If you can't see the hand of God dancing in the mystery
If you don’t see the plan, it wears no disguise.
If you won’t see past hunger and war, and all the rage of history
Won’t you open up your soul
You can see with new eyes.

If you don’t step past reason alone
how can love ever live in you?
If you can’t find the Ghost in the night
how will you ever see?
If you won’t read the autograph of love
written in the morning dew?
Won’t you let go of these chains
Go free
