Day 13

Yesterday, and the day before, and the day before that…as far back as I can remember, I’ve been encouraging myself and others to think about the possibility that we might have some things…not quite right.  We might be mis-informed, confused, or yes, just plain wrong.  I hope that’s not the only thing I’ve said, I hope I’ve also talked about the Good Shepherd, who got so much right even though he was perpetually misunderstood.  Of course, this song says all that so much better than I ever could, so here you go:  gold in them hills…

Gold In Them Hills. Mortar & Stone

I know it doesn’t seem that way
But maybe it’s the perfect day
Even though the bills are piling
Maybe lady luck ain’t smiling
But if we’d only open our eyes
We’d see the blessings in disguise
That all the rain clouds are fountains
Though our troubles seem like mountains

There’s gold in them hills
There’s gold in them hills
So don’t lose heart
Give the day a chance to start

Every now and then life says
Where you think you’re going so fast
We’re apt to think it cruel but sometimes
It’s a case of cruel to be kind
And if we’d get up off of our knees
Why then we’d see the forest for the trees
And we’d see the new sun rising
Over the hills on the horizon

There’s gold in them hills
There’s gold in them hills
So don’t lose faith
Give the world a chance to say

A word or two my friend
There’s no telling how the day might end
And we’ll never know until
We see there

Is gold in them hills
There’s gold in them hills
So don’t lose heart
Give the day a chance to start
There’s gold in them hills
There’s gold in them hills  © Ron Sexmith / Sony ATV Songs
