A Prisoner

Written by George Leon Pike, Sr.

1. I’m a pris’ner of heartaches and sorrows,

And there’s nothing but trouble for me,

But I’m searching for a brighter tomorrow,

In a land where I know I’ll be free.

 

2. I long for the springtime of heaven,

And the beauty that I’ve heard about,

Where the flowers and fragrance of glory,

Everlastingly never fade out.

 

Chorus:

Soon I’ll take my journey to never return,

To this valley with it’s tears of despair,

On the hilltops of glory,

Some day I shall stand,

In freedom and answer to prayer.
