Lyrics

How great the wonder of the heavens
And the timeless beauty of the night
How great, then how great, the Creator

And its stars like priceless jewels
Far beyond the reach of kings
Bow down for the shepherd guiding him home

But how many eyes are closed
To the wonder of this night
Like pearls, hidden deep
Beneath a dark stream of desires
But like dreams vanish with the call to prayer
And the dawn extinguishes night
Here too are signs

God is the Light, God is the Light

How great the beauty of the earth
And the creatures who dwell on her
How great, then how great, the Creator
As its mountains pierce the clouds
High above the lives of men
Weeping rivers for thousands of years

But how many hearts are closed
To the wonders of this sight
Like birds in a cage
Asleep with closed wings
But like work stops with the call to prayer
And the birds recite
Here too are signs

God is the Light, God is the Light

How great the works of man
And the things he makes
How great, then how great, the Creator
Though he strives to reach the heavens
He can barely survive
The wars of the world he lives in

Yet how many times he's tried
Himself to immortalise
Like his parents before him
In the Garden of Eden
But like the sun sets with the call to prayer
And surrenders to the night
Here too are signs

God is the Light, Everlasting ( x4 )
