AD lyrics - Children Of The Shadows

AD
"Children Of The Shadows"

All along the western shore, where the sea meets the sky
No remaining gates of gold, where once they stood high
In the pride of flesh and blood, built on walls of sand
Dreams of glory swept away, never destined to stand

Shine on, shine on deep in the night
Shine on, shine on ever so bright
Light the way for the children of the shadows
Reaching down to the legions of the lost
Light the way for the children of the shadows
Counting the cost

Towers streching to the sun, cities known of old
Many by the sword have fallen, both the weak and the bold
As the ages come and go, so the seasons of man
Holding on to a pale reflection, as it fades again

Shine on, shine on deep in the night
Shine on, shine on ever so bright
Light the way for the children of the shadows
Reaching down to the legions of the lost
Light the way for the children of the shadows
Counting the cost

Ever remaining the chosen Son, given the name of the Holy One
Through the centuries never changing
From the present to the past, by Your hand the future is cast

What a tale the past would tell, if the ruins could speak
Through a glass we are darkly peering
Knowing now what we seek

Shine on, shine on deep in the night
Shine on, shine on ever so bright
Light the way for the children of the shadows
Reaching down to the legions of the lost
Light the way for the children of the shadows
Counting the cost

We will stand against the night
