Before The Morning - Josh Wilson

Have you heard "Before The Morning" by Josh Wilson?  I've heard this many time on KTIS, our local Christian radio station (which by the way, you can listen to online anytime!) but I've never really paid attention to the words until Katy posted the lyrics on her blog.  It's a great song, and I can't seem to get enough of it!

The words from the chorus is exactly what I (we?) need to hear:

   Would you dare would you dare to believe
   That you still have a reason to sing
   Cause the pain that you've been feeling
   It can't compare to the joy that's coming
   So hold on you gotta wait for the light
   Press on and just fight the good fight
   Cause the pain that you've been feeling
   It's just the dark before the morning

And

   It's just the hurt before the healing
   Oh the pain that you've been feeling
   It's just the dark before the morning

There is joy coming!  There is healing coming!



Here are the full lyrics:

Do you wonder why you have to
Feel the things that hurt you
If there’s a God who loves you where is He now

Maybe there are things you can’t see
And all those things are happening
To bring a better ending

Someday somehow you’ll see, you’ll see

Chorus:
Would you dare would you dare to believe
That you still have a reason to sing
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It can’t compare to the joy that’s coming
So hold on you gotta wait for the light
Press on and just fight the good fight
Cause the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning

My friend you know how this all ends
You know where you’re going
You just don’t know how you’ll get there
So say a prayer

And hold on cause there’s good for those who love God
But life is not a snapshot
It might take a little time but you’ll see the bigger picture

Chorus

Once you feel the weight of glory
All your pain will fade to memory

Chorus
It’s just the hurt before the healing
Oh the pain that you’ve been feeling
It’s just the dark before the morning

  1. Thanks so much for sharing the song and video. It's really perfect for describing how I'm feeling and the hope that is truly coming. I'm going to share it with my MIL who is grieving the loss of her husband 4 months ago.
