A Change is Gonna Come

(Seal’s remake of Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come”)


There is medicine in this song.  Hope-reviving medicine.

Listen.  Let it do its healing.

Let it make you feel better.

Let it make you believe again.

If you have been waiting for something to happen.

Been working for something to happen.

Been looking.

Been loving.

Been praying.

 Believe me when I tell you that I know your pain.

The pain of insufferable delay.

Despite your very, very best effort.

Despite that bright, shiny heart of yours

that keeps on liftin’ and shiftin’

and parting seas.

To you I say:

“Keep holding your rod out.”

Don’t you dare tire.

Don’t you dare put it down.

You do as Moses did, you hear?

Because those waters will most definitely part.

(“Moses Parting The Red Sea,” by Aaron Hicks)


And your change will come.

And the sheer beauty of it…

oh my…

Heaven will be jealous.

    Thanks for the inspiration! Haven’t listened to Sam Cooke in awhile, and Seal is surprisingly in the same league. Anyone checked out the album yet? Is there even an album?
