Josh Garrels - Morning Light Lyrics

There's a place, a garden for the young
To laugh and dance in safety among
The shimmering light in the garden of peace

But steal a bite and paradise is lost
With darkened hearts we didn't count the cost
Forgot all we left behind

Life picks up speed before you know
We're holding on for dear life, Oh Lord
We're too proud to turn back now

One day it all falls down
It breaks our heart and it breaks our crown
Brings us down where we see

It's gonna be alright
Turn around and let back in the light
And joy will come
Like a bird in the morning sun
And all will be made well
Once again

There's a way that seems right to a man
Until he's in over head and he don't understand
How the plans he made only led him astray

But every good gift comes down from above
From the Lord of light like a labor of love
Upon the child who waits for Him

Sometimes you'll find what you're waiting for
Was there all along just waiting for you
To turn around and reconcile

And it may be broken down
All the bridges burned like an old ghost town
But this my son can be made new

It's gonna be alright
Shake it out and let back in the light
And joy will come
Like a bird in the morning sun
And all will be made well
And all will be made well
And all will be made well
Once again

    This song makes my soul long for the Lord to make all things new. "Turn around and let back in the light," I want so much to be able to do this.

  6. Jonathan Mafi

    I thought he said "like the burning in the morning sun" then found out it was "like a bird.."

    I think my line is better :p

    Sunshine in the morning :) beautiful refreshing live giving tingling "burn". Writing this while finishing breakfast under the blue sky and sunshine. After 27 days of rain!

    Beautiful music Josh. When I first heard of you I listen to the first 3 of your CDs none stop for 4 months. When ever my faith grows weak or fear threatens to grip me, the Holy Spirit within me uses your melody to draw me to the Father.

    God is Great

    Keep the strength! God loves you

    Suzy Van Horn

    This is Amazing! I've always based a favorite song on, how it speaks to my heart and if I could listen to over 1000 times. This song, I just can't hear it enough.
    Thank you.
    Praise Jesus!
