It is long since I have been here
Yes you may ask, where is here?
I say you may ask, why here?
So listen to what I’ve got to say about this here
Here where the generosity of life gives without strife
Where love, not in arrogance
Gives freely and in abundance
Where the spirit of light shines in sheer delight
Here where there is no pain and sorrow
Where there is no thinking of tomorrow
Here where I am free and in joy I can feel life’s cares shed away
Where in bliss I can while my days away.
Here where the soul of nature
In blind trust mature
Where all creation in its magnificence
Acknowledges the good Lord in all essence
Where seasons like the ebb of the tide
Break away from the shores of time
I have been long gone, I have long traveled with sorrow
Yes, I have long bedded with hatred
And now I am weary and done and I want to be here
Where in song and praise I can hear
The deification of a God who cares
Here where like a caress, feels the touch of a fiend
And so welcome is the embrace of a friend
Yeah, I have been long gone
And I have come back to stay
Here! Here! Here!
