In this world of wills and whims
and damned uncertainty
All we have is precious time
All our lives we learn of wrong and right,
black and white
It’s hard to read between the lines

And the darkness is surrounding us,
and the fires are growing cold
But I believe that we can find the light,
and there will live a brand new dawn. So…

Earth shine on, Earth shine on
Earth shine on, Earth shine on

Daddy works his fingers to the bone
to make ends meet
He wonders why he’s dealt this hand
Mother watches as he drowns
his sorrows every night
And tries her best to understand

And the children have nowhere to go,
they have nowhere to put their faith
But there’s a Father that they do not know,
if they would only seek His face.  So...

Earth shine on, Earth shine on
Earth shine on, Earth shine on

All that was and is and will ever be again,
will shine on my friend
It will shine until the end.  So...

Earth shine on, Earth shine on
Earth shine on, Earth shine on

Earthshine
