If you, or someone you know, has a loved one who is struggling or in any kind of pain (as Life will present to us), this song has always touched my heart, even helped me find strength. For me personally, (this is Carol writing), the words give me hope and provide faith. And when in a struggle or crisis, this is what we need the most. We have to believe “things are gonna get easier”… “Someday we’ll put it together and get it all done; Someday we’ll walk in the rays of a beautiful sun ….”
Because after we ride the rough storms of those challenging, difficult, and sometimes heartbreaking events, this is where faith and hope reside, waiting for us.
This is Beth Orton’s version – her voice is so strong; it gives me great strength. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0tYkk_B-Cg
This version is from the original Five Stairsteps who performed it on Soul Train years back. I love it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrotsEzgEpg&feature=related
Believe and know… your “someday” will come.
