Somewhere in the shadows lies the answer-
To the problems which we face by light of day.
And a pathway leading through the darkest valley-
Can be followed to that land of endless day.

Chorus:
In a world we find so clouded by confusion-
And it seems no peaceful haven does afford...
In the shadows just outside the teeming masses,
You will find the peaceful Presence of the Lord.

Thought the world has often used you, and abused you-
And your countenance be weary, hard, and scarred-
There’s a Potter standing somewhere in the shadows,
Who can make anew the vessel that is marred.

Standing somewhere in the shadows you will find Him..
The One who bore our sins upon the tree...
And He cried aloud, “My Father, please forgive them”,
And today He’ll intercede for you and me.
