If We Could Remember

Yolanda Adams

Remember ...

If we could remember
The moment of our birth.
We give our voice
To songs and whispers,
And know what life is worth.

Remember, remember...

Suddenly there's beauty
In pieces of the past --
And sorrow clings
To angry questions,
The days of dust at last.

And morning holds us
When worlds come tumbling down.
A dance of ghosts and ragged dreams
Spinning round, spinning round, spinning round --

I remember, remember...

If we could remember
The power of the light;
That cripple prayers
Are sometimes answered,
And hope survives the night --
And hope survives the night.

I remember, I remember, remember...
