Only A Song

(For Chris and Heather)

Words by Mindy Jostyn & Jacob Brackman
Music by Mindy Jostyn

Listen to the morning lark
Whistling in the deepest dark
Only a song, but it’s straight from the heart
Daylight arrives. Sun must’ve heard
So much power for one little bird
Only a song, but it breaks through the dark

I’ve seen some long nights linger on
I wonder, can I last till dawn
Only a song, but it’s straight from the heart
I raise my voice to praise the One
Next thing you know, here comes the sun
Only a song, but it breaks through the dark

Song of courage, song of grace
Song of freedom, song of faith
From the mountains to the sea
All God’s children, you and me

David has his psalms to sing
He plays the harp and the tambourine
Only a song, but it’s straight from the heart
He soothes the fears of a troubled king
He stops Goliath with one little sling
Only a song, but it breaks through the dark

In Bethlehem, one winter morn
A star shines forth, a baby’s born
Only a song, but it’s straight from the heart
Two thousand years gone by since then
We’re all still tryin’ to sing like him
Only a song, but it breaks through the dark

Song of triumph, song of cheer
Song of love, song of prayer
Risin’ higher, ever higher
Many voices, one great choir

Listen to the morning lark
Whistling in the deepest dark
Only a song, but it’s straight from the heart
Daylight arrives. Sun must’ve heard
So much power for one little bird
Only a song, but it breaks through the dark
