God, my God, I have tried so many things.
God, my God you’re the only one that brings
my heart to the place that it always longs to be.
I’m pure in your eyes though my hands are far from clean.
(so, because) my hope is in the one that gave His only son that I could sing....
Oh, I know His blood has bought the way
and paid the blame that all my sin has made
So, I wait for that marv’lous day
when laughter is language and tears are forgotten,
when I see the brightest day
God, my God, I have finally realized.
God, my God, to fear is to believe a lie.
This world tries to break me and steal my joy away,
but I hold to the promise that you’ll come back some day
(the brightest day, when I see that day)
You’re kingdom is coming, so here our hearts will wait
You’re coming, we’re waiting to see you face to face
“The brightest day,” “When I see the brightest day”
