where are the clouds?
they've wandered away
where is the hand
to rise from the clay?
where is the voice
that truly can say
there's hope and there's Light
for us this day?
so often you've wondered
why life brought you here
and dreaded the answer
that may come to your ear.
but soon you will be
in the Father's embrace
and see truth and compassion
in each human face, but
where are the clouds?
they've wandered away
where is the hand
to rise from the clay?
where is the voice
that truly can say
there's hope and there's Light
for us this day?
God's always present;
He's by your side
no matter the distance
your small feet may stride.
if only you'd reach out
you'd find his big hand
for love only has
He etched in the sands.
oh, there are the clouds!
they've not wandered away
there is the hand
that riz' from the clay?
and there is the voice
that truly did say
there's hope and there's Light
for us this day!
