Oh So Very Near, Certainly Not Far



From A Distance
Bette Midler
From a distance
The world looks blue and green
And the snow-capped mountains white
From a distance
The ocean meets the stream
And the eagle takes to flight
From a distance
There is harmony
And it echoes through the land
It’s the voice of hope
It’s the voice of peace
It’s the voice of every man

From a distance
We all have enough
And no one is in need
And there are no guns
No bombs
And no disease
No hungry mouths to feed
From a Distance
We are instruments
Marching in a common band
Playing songs of hope
Playing songs of peace
They are the songs of every man

God is watching us
God is watching us
God is watching us
From a distance

From a distance
You look like my friend
Even though we are at war
From a distance
I just cannot comprehend
What all this fighting’s for
From a distance
There is harmony
And it echoes through the land
And it’s the hope of hopes
It’s the love of loves
It’s the heart of every man
Every man

It’s the hope of hopes
It’s the love of loves
This is the heart of every man

And God is watching us
God is watching us
God is watching us
From a distance
Oh God is watching us
God is watching
God is watching us
From a distance

Ah Jerry,
you found the song. That is why Jesus says 'I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.'

Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Brenda!!! Yes, and it is indeed a shame that so very many are so content with a faith that is both blind and deaf. For there is so very much that He wants to personally reveal unto us--both for His and our benefit. Thank you again for pointing this song out to me.
