He’s also been kind enough to include the lyrics and chords for those who may wish to play and sing along…
The Light Has Already Won by Mo Mack
C F C
I drew a breath inside of death, the beat of time stood still
Am Dm F G
My quiet heart was filled with joy, I released my grip on will
Em Am F D
Then I sensed someone approaching, and he gently spoke my name
C Am Dm G7 C
He was glowing bright as starlight, he said it’s good you came.
Your world has been in darkness, his words formed in my mind,
Wandering souls have been misled, separation made them blind
But since the solstice of the ages, the darkness is undone,
And in the battle for the heart of all, the light has already won.
Chorus 1: G7 Em F G
He said the light has already won; and the golden age begun,
C F Dm G7 C
He said I share this from the very heart of me, the light has already won.
What battle do you speak of? This thought came out of me
Then a flood of images, war and hate, every vile thing did I see
This vision cast me down so low, that I cried out in despair
I was all alone and filled with fear, Could love still reach me there?
Then I felt a deep vibration, and the darkness broke apart
A golden light from the source of life, was filling every heart
And every face of every race, now saw themselves as one,
The truth has dawned within my heart, the light has already won.
The light has already won; it is healing everyone,
And I know this truth in every part of me, the light has already won.
F Am Dm Em
My companion was now beside me, and he asked in a kindly tone
C Dm F G
Will you stay with us, in this light-filled realm, or return to the life you’ve known?
Am Em F Dm
This choice I’d not considered yet, given all that I’d just been through,
C Am Dm G7 C
But with my heart so full of gratitude, I knew what I must do.
So I bring this news back with me, that the darkest time is done,
As in heaven, so soon on earth, the light has already won.
So see the world all bathed in light, and love growing ever more strong
hold this vision in your heart, and join me in this song.
Repeat Chorus 1, then Chorus 2
