“The Other Side” by Avalon

Captain’s Log, Supplemental

I’m writing like crazy right now on book 3 in the Sushi Series, The Lone Rice Ball (working title).

For most of my books, I have certain albums that I find I play often while I’m working on the rough draft. For this book, one of those albums is Stand by Avalon.

The song below, especially, has been uplifting and awe-inspiring. Which is apropos because my heroine has to learn to slow down and feel the awe of God’s presence.

I’m also reading Revelations right now (almost done with the book) and this song reminds me that the New Jerusalem is coming, and I’ll see it one day!

“The Other Side”
By Avalon

I've been so long in midnight
Praying for the light of dawn
And hope's been my companion
In the dark to keep me strong
But there's something awesome
Shining out through the ebony
And now my soul can finally see

There is glory in the night
So beautiful and bright
A glimpse of You
Coming from the other side
You are reaching through the stars
And You're speaking to my heart
I know it's You
Calling from the other side

How could I not have realized
You've been here all along
So constant and so faithful
Through the darkness and beyond
It's unthinkable, undreamable
There's peace when I look up
'Cause I see the evidence of love

There is glory in the night
So beautiful and bright
A glimpse of You
Coming from the other side
You are reaching through the stars
And You're speaking to my heart
I know it's You
Calling from the other side

The other side....tonight

I am dancing through the night
Knowing things will be all right
Because of You
I'll make it to the other side
You are reaching through the stars
And You're speaking to my heart
I know it's You
Calling from the other side

There is glory in the night
So beautiful and bright
A glimpse of You
Coming from the other side
You are reaching through the stars
And You're speaking to my heart
I know it's You
Calling from the other side
