Intro

Am

FI see them gathered, see them onG the shore Am I turned to look once more FAnd he who knows me not GTakes me to the belly of darkness Am The tears run swift and hard And when they fall Even, 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

Chorus 1

FTears will run swift And tears Gwill come that fall like raAmin FI pray that it's swift though TGears will fall as cold asAm pain FI pray to the almighty G Let me not to him do Am As he has unto me FTeach my beloved children Who have been enslaved To reaAmch 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, even the comfort of a stone would be a gain Had I not had 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 [Repeat Chorus] [alt. Last line in Chorus] 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
