There’s a Light at the End of the Tunnel

Puzzler's Corner Blog, Midwest District, DS Margie Crawford Blog

I am finding that I sing a lot more these days.  The tile of this week’s Puzzler’s Corner comes from an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, called Starlight Express.  It’s a different kind of musical about an old fashion train engine which enters a race to impress one of the other train cars.  No, seriously, that’s what happens. 

The actors fly around the stage on roller skates, singing and dancing as the story is told.  The best song from the show is There’s a light at the end of the Tunnel.  At its core is a story of faith and hope.  When I searched for the lyrics online, I found these lyrics instead.  I share them with you to lift our spirits.

There’s a light at the end of this Tunnel

Well, I won’t pretend to know what you’re thinking
And I can’t begin to know what you’re going through
And I won’t deny the pain that you’re feeling
But I’m gonna try and give a little hope to you

Just remember what I told you
There’s so much your living for

Refrain:  There’s a light at the end of this tunnel
There’s a light at the end of this tunnel for you, for you
And there’s a light at the end of this tunnel
Shining bright at the end of this tunnel for you, for you
So keep holding on

You got your disappointments and sorrows
You ought to share the weight of that load with me
Then you will find that the light of tomorrow
Well it brings new life for your eyes to see

So remember what I told you
There’s so much your living for

Refrain

As we continue to shelter in place, please know that this time will end.  We will have the opportunity to create new ways of being together in the same place.  God is with us during these days and the days to come.  And Amen.
