Dark Horse
Words and Music by John Fischer

He's a dark horse in the nighttime
Heading straight for the enemy camp
And he has no fear
'Cause his eye is clear
Throwing light like a burning lamp
And maybe sometime at the right time
You may see him galloping by
A simple man
With a single plan,
And the Spirit in his eye.

He's the one who no one thought could make it through
He's the one who looks a lot like me and you
But he can hear it
When the Spirit
Tells him where to go and what to say
'Cause he knows that he can never be free
When he's going his own way.

He's a dark horse in the nighttime
Heading straight for the enemy camp
And he has no fear
'Cause his eye is clear
Throwing light like a burning lamp
And maybe sometime at the right time
You may see him galloping by
A simple man
With a single plan,
And the Spirit in his eye.

He will not deny the struggle in his heart
But he also knows the grace that is his part
And his secret
Is the Spirit
'Cause he's trusting nothing of his own
And he's fixed his eyes on the highest prize
And he's headed for his home.

He's a dark horse in the nighttime
Heading straight for the enemy camp
And he has no fear
'Cause his eye is clear
Throwing light like a burning lamp
And maybe sometime at the right time
You may see him galloping by
A simple man
With a single plan,
And the Spirit in his eye.
