I Will Shine

As God’s unique creation, we need not wish for another time, place, vocation, or identity. Supporting this reassuring message is a rolling accompaniment with contemporary harmonies. Somewhat challenging.

I Will Shine
Music and lyrics by Elizabeth Ragsdale
Arrangement by Michael Butkus-Bomier

Verse 1
I do not wish for another time,
A day gone by or yet to come.
Love owns this hour,
Her abiding care unconfined.

Verse 2
I do not wish for another place,
Down the road or across the globe.
Love makes her home
In exalted thought raised in praise.

Verse 3
I do not wish for another role,
To play the part that is not mine.
Love employs the heart
To make the lost and broken whole.

Now is the time. Here is the place.
Love is the work that God assigns.
I am her unique creation.
I will shine.

Verse 4
I do not wish for another me,
With more of this and less of that.
Love favors none,
Ev’ry one is made to be complete.
