Randy Travis – Point Of Light Lyrics

There’s a point when you cannot walk away
There’s a darkness that everyone must face
There are heroes whose names we never hear

When you have to stand up straight and tall and mean the words you say
It wants to take what’s good and fair and lay it all to waste
A dedicated army of quiet volunteers

There’s a point you must decide just to do it ’cause it’s right
And that darkness covers everything in sight
Reaching out to feed the hungry reaching out to save the land

That’s when you become a point of light
Until it meets a single point of light
Reaching out to their fellow men.

All it takes is a point of light a ray of hope in the darkest night.
If you see what’s wrong and you try to make it right you will be a point of light.

There are dreamers who are making dreams come true
Taking time to teach the children there’s nothing they can’t do.
Giving shelter to the homeless giving hope to those without.
Isn’t that what this land’s all about.
One by one form the mountains to the sea points of light
Are calling out to you and me

All it takes is a point of light a ray of hope in the darkest night.
If you see what’s wrong and you try to make it right
You will be a point of light.
