08. Carry The Fire

Light for the Lost Boy
by Andrew Peterson



 

I will hold your hand, love
As long as I can, love
Though the powers rise against us
Though your fears assail you
And your body may fail you
There's a fire that burns within us

And we dream in the night
Of a city descending
With the sun in the center
And a peace unending

I will carry the fire for you

And we kneel in the water
The sons and the daughters
And we hold our hearts before us
And we look to the distance
And raise our resistance
In the face of the forces
Gathered against us

And we dream in the night
Of a king and a kingdom
Where joy writes the songs
And the innocent sing them

I will carry the fire for you

Oh, sing on, sing on
When your hope is gone
Sing on, sing on
(Light up the darkness)

And we dream in the night
Of a feast and a wedding
And the groom in his glory
When the bride is made ready

I will carry the fire for you
