Once there was a man, and he lived to sing the lions song
As he traveled on road of hope
One Love is the light, shining over every mountain top
It will lead us to the higher ground
One day every heart will beat strong against the night
Let it be done right now
Once there was a man, and his words became a song of love
And his song became the golden dream
One Love is the light, shining over everyone that believes
It will lead us to the higher ground
One day every eye will see truth before the light
Let it be done right now

Some wait, so long
Because our love is strong
This hard road traveled on
Will lead us home, forever

Hear the lion's song, voices cryin' like a desert wind
Yeh he's gone unto his father's land
Afrika tonight, for we truly are one in our hearts
Colors woven in the golden dream

One day every eye will see truth before the light
Let it be done right now
One day every voice will speak strong against the night
Let us be one right now
So let it be

We are the children of a thousand days
We are the people of the hard rain
We are the children of a thousand days
We are the people of the hard rain
We are the people of the hard rain

From the album "Wide Awake In Dreamland"
Written by: Neil Geraldo & Myron Grombacher

    General Comment:I can't believe no one has commented on this! It seems to me this song is about Jesus Christ.

    General Comment: Emily, I was trying to make it into something it wasn't, but now that you said it, I would tend to agree with you & what a beautiful song it is. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
