Brighter Day

This song is by Randy Stonehill and appears on the album Can't Buy A Miracle (1988).

Hey.

Everybody's bruised; it's been that kind of year,
Been a little house cleaning, been a lot of pain and tears,
But it's no good running away,
Learn from the hard times, make them pay,
I'm just saying my prayers and looking for a brighter day.

Looking for a brighter day,
Don't look down, you'll only see the ground,
Looking for a brighter day,
Got to hit the hard run, keep your face to the sun,
Babe, it's gonna be okay,
Saying my prayers and looking for a brighter day.

I was hanging on the roof by the time the rain clouds dried,
I was caught up in the flood, but I made it to the other side,
Now my feet are all covered with clay, but I know I'm gonna be okay,
I'm just saying my prayers and I'm looking for a brighter day.

Looking for a brighter day,
Don't look down, you'll only see the ground,
Looking for a brighter day,
Got to hit the hard run, keep your face to the sun,
Babe, it's gonna be okay,
Saying my prayers and looking for a brighter day.

Oh, everybody knows,
It ain't me, sure not you,
Oh, face that cloudy grey,
The sun is cutting through,
The sun is cutting through, yeah.

Well, the good Lord came on down to the world of grief, and he put up with our foolish pride and our unbelief,
We didn't listen to what he'd say, but he died for us anyway,
You know he took the heat and kept looking for a brighter day.

Looking for a brighter day,
Don't look down, you'll only see the ground,
Looking for a brighter day,
Got to hit the hard run, keep your face to the sun now.

Looking for a brighter day,
Looking for a brighter day,
Now I'm looking for a brighter day,
Looking for a brighter day, yeah, yeah,
Oh yeah,
Brighter day,
Brighter day.
