There is a cloud in yonder
vast sky
Like a ghost it is sailing
far out into the blue
Without a reason of doubt, or
of the questioning, why
It sails farther and farther away
till it is far out from view,
To anything, unfettered and unbound,
entering into its inner sphere
It ventures to a world, where all
is beautiful and clear

And as I watch, from the other
world, comes a gleam
A telling of some secret to know
Hidden treasures that contain our
innermost hopes and dreams
A pathway for the enlightenment
of the soul,
It is all out there, now coming
into view
In a longing for love, the clarity
of truth

But, though downcast as I am, however
distant and far still it be, I captured
a glimpse
In my inward being, of the peace, the
joy and the bliss
It is not now here, for ages have
passed, since
Our fall from grace, and truth in its
purity, in this world, does not exist,
Thus is the soul in a mournful state
of sorrow
In longing, looking for the coming of
the wonderful new world tomorrow

Oh, how my soul longs for that day
When the sins of this present life,
will be no more
All of life's illusions to
forever fade
And follow the cloud, as it sails
into another shore,
Envisioning in dreams, as I close
my eyes
The paradise, that now, to us
is denied

And find myself walking with God
Down through fields of light
I can feel the immense joy, what
it is, to be happy and free
Like a butterfly flying through
the air, in pure delight
In a garden of lovely flowers
and blossoming trees,
Where all is peaceful, faithful,
loving and true
It is all out there, now coming
into view
