Lyrics:

Some days are so hard that we look to the night as our protection
when we have no strength left for the fight
We refuse to believe that we can go on
and we wonder when the night and the pain will be gone
CHORUS: The clouds in the distance roll the darkness from the light,
When you wake up, the sun will still rise, it's all right, you can open your eyes

It may be people we know, the situations we face
We need patience to answer with wisdom and grace
It takes courage to live, uncertain of what will be.
There are days when the night is all we can see
CHORUS
You can open your eyes

A brilliant dawn is breaking as the ocean kisses the shore
Even through the haze, there is promise in store

So rest for a while, let your mind be still.
There are hills to climb and dreams to fulfill
Your aspirations will guide your work until it's done.
May you walk with hope when each day has begun
CHORUS
You can open your eyes (3x)
When you wake up, the sun will still rise, it's all right, you can open your eyes
