(Of What You Can Become)

JAMES P LONG

 
 

I have dreams of what you can become;

I have dreams of what you will be.

In my mind I see the image of Christ.

In my mind I see Jesus in you.

In you.


This I know beyond the shadow cast by doubt;

This I know without a question at all:

You will stand in the presence of God;

You will stand, and you will not be ashamed,

Not be ashamed at all.


Right now

You may yearn for all you’re made to be

Yet stumble with the weight of who you are.

You may strive to rise above

All that holds you down,

And wonder if you’ll ever, ever change.

But just wait,

Just wait;

Greater things are soon to come

Than you can now foresee.

Just wait.

Just wait.


Time will cease and life will begin;

Time will cease, yet the best is to come;

When you see the darkness fading away;

When you see the Star that never will fall,

Never will fall,

Bright Morning Star of God.


I have dreams of what you can become;

I have dreams of what you will be.

In my mind I see that radiant Star;

In my mind I see the Sun of Love

Rising to shine,

Rising to shine

On you.

We fix our eyes

not on what is seen,

but on what is unseen.

For what is seen

is temporary;

but what is unseen

is eternal.
