Lyrics

The Soul and the Rival

He came down from heaven a soul shining bright
One who had the power to bring others to the light
He was living peaceful calm as a flowing stream
Many people gathered around to find tranquility

He came down from heaven a soul shining bright
One who had the power to bring others to the light

The people that assembled were from all walks of life
From the city from the country from downtown to the heights
Some came to hear his wisdom others for advice
Simply being close to the righteous soul would raise their spirits high

He came down from heaven a soul shining bright
One who had the power to bring others to the light

There arose a rival who came to show his might
Said the righteous soul was just another fly by night
Throwing accusations that had no basis for belief
Caused the soul to lose his glow and suffer loads of grief

When they saw the bitter life the holy soul would spend
Many went back to their old ways and their city friends
The ones that stuck around were devoted in their hearts
They knew the soul was heaven sent and didn’t want to part

He came down from heaven a soul shining bright
One who had the power to bring others to the light
