I no longer have access to the CD to double check what I transcribed years ago, and I could not find a Mangsen Youtube viudeo or soundclip. I believe Cindy may have picked this up via the Bellamy Brothers (and their soundclip is findable). Her version is a fun-- smoother, folkier-- phrasing. It's a great song! (Capitalization for church use is mine.)


WHERE THE LIGHT COMES FROM
Don Schlitz/Thom Schuyler
Learned from the singing of Cindy Mangsen on "Songlines."
For those days when you aren't… quite… sure….
Adapted, edited, arranged © 2014 Susan O. Hinton for The Good News-Goodtime Band.


1. There are shadows that surround me;
They've settled on my heart.
It is midnight all around me--
I'm a prisoner in the dark.
I heard tell of a Light that dwells
Inside of everyone…
I want to go where the Light comes from!

CHO:
I want to go when my life is over,
I want to go when my work is done.
I want to go where the Light comes from!
        
2. Some will say, "You can't get near it,"
Some are burning with the flame.
Some will tell you, "It's a Spirit,"
And they've given it a name.
Some say, "You've got to crawl there,"
But I think I'm going to run!
I want to go where the Light comes from!

3. I have seen that Light reflected
In an old grandfather's smile;
In the eyes of a young mother
As she held her baby child.
I'm still here in the darkness,
But Darkness hasn't won!
I want to go where the Light comes from!


LAST CHO:
I want to go when my life is over,
I want to reach out and touch the sun.
I want to go where the Light comes from!
