  • Oh
    And the rain? tossed about us;
    In the garden of the world
    But a flame arrives to guide us;
    Past the gold between the anvils of the stars

    Watch you over all the children in the rain;
    And the streets where I remember
    Where the fire lights
    Are candle souls again;

    Affirming flame,
    Hear me call;
    Through the darkness,
    Hear it call to us all

    And stir again;
    This beating heart
    Comes again

    Oh
    And the drive out all our fears
    And the joy drive out our pain
    And the nations come to greet us
    Waving open arms like waves of golden corn

    Ever hear us,
    Oh, the spirit of the world
    May your light be ever near us
    Always lead us from the dark
    Though we may fall

    We will fly
    And with love
    Ever call Writer/s: KARL HYDE, RICHARD DAVID SMITH
