Song Lyrics


The Thief and the Friend
by Jason Upton

Album: A Table Full of Strangers, Vol. 1


Many men are brave
And many men are strong
But few men have I ever seen

Who fights for who's right
And then fight for who's wrong
Fight for the friend and the thief
I've heard of you
You've got so many names
But you call yourself Son of man
And I've heard your song
On the streets where I live
I've heard it over and over again

Light a candle tonight
Let it shine let it shine
Let it shine for the goodness and glory of God
Let it on the wrong
Let it shine on the right
And shine especially bright for the losers
For I have given them hope and a future

Castles in the sky they young men
And old men build ladders
That reach up to them
Nobody's right and nobody's wrong
We're all just building a place to belong
Broken angels who can't find their wings
Wondering if they'll fly again
For orphans who've lost everything
I hear your song over them

The sun lights the moon
And the moon lights the night
While the earth spins around once again
And it shines on the wrong
And it shines on the right
It shines on the thief and the friend

Many men are brave
And many men are strong
But candle tricks burn out gain

Light a candle tonight
Let it shine let it shine
Let it shine for the goodness and glory of God
Let it on the wrong
Let it shine on the right
And shine especially bright for the losers
For I have given them hope and a future

Let your light Let your light
Let your light shine
Shine for the goodness and glory

Let it shine let it shine
Let your light shine
Shine for the goodness of God

Let it shine let it shine
Let your light shine
Shine for the glory of God
