KEEP YOUR FACE TOWARD THE LIGHT

Keep your face toward the light
And the shadows will fall
Forever behind you
No matter how tall.

Keep your face toward the light
And the dark of the storm
Will pass lightly over
And do you no harm.

Keep your face toward the sun
And the breath of the wind
Will warm your heart gently
And blizzards will end.

Keep your face toward tomorrow
And with faith you will go
With your heart full of courage
To make your day glow!
