Discipling the Body

Love is the light scaring darkness away.

The title of today’s post is taken from the song “The Power of Love” – You can read the lyrics here: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/gabrielleaplin/thepoweroflove.html

I first hear the song when it was sung by the brother duo Richard and Adam on their album The Impossible Dream. I became aware of that album after hearing them on a youtube video of their audition on Britain Got Talent. It’s a powerful rendition of the son “The Impossible Dream” from the musical Man of La Mancha about Don Quixote.  Watch their audition here.

I’ve always loved this song. It’s a powerful call to action, for anyone troubled the injustices of the world. Give it a listen.

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I’ll only be true 
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
