I See Beyond

I see beyond the dimness Of the distant hazy past, Into the book of knowledge, And I'm homeward bound at last. I see beyond myself, Into your loving ways, I see beyond so many things I didn't yesterday. I see beyond the anger, I see beyond the pain, I see beyond my waywardness, I see beyond the gain. I see beyond tomorrow, I see beyond today, I see beyond humanity, I see beyond the grave.
