"One Day (A Prayer)" lyrics - BARBRA STREISAND

"One Day (A Prayer)"

One day the fields will be greener
One day the skies will be bluer
One day the rivers will be bright silver ribbons
Running 'round the hills quiet hills

You'll see, one day
The rains will be softer
One day, the winds will be sweeter
Sweeter than springtime
And the whisper of lilac, apple, pine and pear
Will fill the air

And one day a child full of wonder
Won't fear the dark sound of thunder
No dreams of danger
When a soldier's a stranger from a distant time, distant world

On that morning you stand
With tomorrow safe in your hand
That will be the day
