God's Sunrise Over Great Bend

While on the road to New York,

Over the town of Great Bend,

We beheld the most beautiful sunrise

That Heaven could possibly send.

God's glory displayed

In the brightening new day.

A vision of hope restored.

The darkness defeated and held at bay.

Faith in Jesus, The Light of the World;

Like the sun, He'll help us to see

That His light will overcome the darkness.

His love and power sets us finally free.

God is a God of beauty.

We can find it if we're young at heart.

Seek God and we will find Him.

It's never too late to make a new start.

The sunrise is a reminding symbol

That God is alive and near.

Never doubt or give up on God our Father,

For He loves and holds us dear.
