    God Is The Light (Live)

    How great the wonders of the heavens
    And the timeless beauty of the night
    How great, then how great the Creator?
    And its star like priceless jewels far beyond the reach of kings
    Bow down for the shepherd guiding him home

    But how many eyes are closed to the wonder of this night?
    Like pearls, hidden, deep beneath a dark stream of desires
    But like dreams vanish with the call to prayer
    And the dawn extinguishes night – here too are signs
    God is the light
    God is the light

    How great the beauty of the Earth and the creatures who dwell on her
    How great,  then how great the Creator?
    As it’s mountains pierce the clouds high above the lives of men
    Weeping rivers for thousands of years

    But how many hearts are closed to the wonders of this sight?
    Like birds in a cage, asleep with closed wings
    But as work stops with the call to prayer
    And the birds recite – here too are signs
    God is the light
    God is the light

    How great the works of man and the things he makes
    How great, then how great the Creator?
    Though he strives to reach the heavens he can barely survive
    the wars of the world he lives in

    Yet how many times he’s tried, himself to immortalize?
    Like his parents before him in the garden of Eden
    But like the sun sets with the call to prayer
    And surrenders to the night here too are signs
    God is the light everlasting
    God is the light everlasting
    God is the light everlasting
    God is the light everlasting
