    Lyrics

    i see them gathered see
    them on the shore
    i turned to look once more
    and he who knows me not takes me to the belly
    of darkness

    the tears run swift and hard and when they fall
    even the comfort of a stone would be a gain
    there was a time
    when i thought
    i would have to give up
    but i'm thankful that i'm
    strong as i am and i'll try to do
    the best i can

    tears will run swift and tears will come that fall like rain
    i pray that it's swift though tears will fall as cold as pain

    i pray to the almighty
    let me not to him do
    as he has unto me
    teach my beloved children
    who have been enslaved
    to reach for the light continually

    so many times i prayed
    so many times i've prayed
    for you
    prayed for you
    the tears run swift and hard and cold as pain
    even the comfort of a stone would be a gain
    had i not the strength and wisdom of a warrior
    i would have to give up
    but i'm thankful that i'm
    strong as i am
    and i'll try to do the best i can

    tears will run swift and tears will come that fall like rain
    i pray that it's swift though tears will fall as cold as pain

    i pray to the almighty
    let us not do as he has unto us
    teach my beloved children
    i've been a slave
    but reach for the
    light continually

    wisdom is the flame
    wisdom is the brave warrior who will carry us into the sun
    i pray that it's swift though tears will come that fall like rain

    so many times so many times
