You'll See a Much Brighter Day
words and music by Bill Pere
 
When you least expect them, all the colors of the spectrum
Pick the places all around you that you thought were lying fallow
And the flowers, fields, and clover show that God is watching over us all
Even when the rains come and you feel that lonely pain sometimes...
 
Sometimes, the gray clouds fill the skies
And rain reflects the teardrops in your eyes
But God made the rainfall to water the plants
So the flowers would grow and we'd all have a chance
To watch the flowers bloom and see
The colors wash the grayness away
And if you put your faith in His love
You'll see a much brighter day...

The yellow pale of moonglow on the wane as winter winds blow
And the silk and silver white clouds become gray and silent night shrouds
That obscure the Heaven's beacon and you find that you are seekin' something
Safe and sure when night comes you feel something isn't right sometimes...

Sometimes, we seek a guiding light
And find ourselves surrounded by the night
But God made the night so we could watch the sun rise
And see the pictures it's painting upon the morning skies
With rich vermilion reds and blues
That wash all the grayness away
And if you put your faith in His love
You'll see a much brighter day...

The color maze of rainbows and the maize gold of the corn rows
Fade to gray off in the distance, it seems just another instance
Of a road that's never ending cause it's always winding, bending
With directions that are wrong as you go wandering along the road...

The road seems long and hard at times
It seems that we can never make the climb
But God made the hill steep so it could lift us up high
And we can stand at the top and feel like we can fly
And look down at that verdant land
Washing the grayness away
And if you put your faith in His love
You'll see a much brighter day...
