Don't worry mother 
It'll be alright 
And don't worry sister 
Say your prayers and sleep tight 
And it'll be fine 
Lover of mine 
It'll be just fine

And lend your voices only 
To sounds of freedom 
No longer lend your strength 
To that which you wish 
To be free from 
Fill your lives 
With love and bravery 
And you shall lead 
A life uncommon

I've heard your anguish 
I've heard your hearts cry out 
We are tired, we are weary 
But we aren't worn out 
Set down your chains 
Until only faith remains 
Set down your chains

And lend your voices only 
To sounds of freedom 
No longer lend your strength 
To that which you wish 
To be free from 
Fill your lives 
With love and bravery 
And we shall lead 
A life uncommon

There are plenty of people 
Who pray for peace 
But if praying were enough 
It would've come to be 
Let your words enslave no one 
And the heavens will hush themselves 
To hear our voices ring our clear 
With sounds of freedom 
Sounds of freedom

Come on you unbelievers 
Move out of the way 
There is a new army coming 
And we are armed with faith 
To live, we must give 
To live

And lend our voices only 
To sounds of freedom 
No longer lend our strength 
To that which we wish 
To be free from 
Fill your lives 
With love and bravery 
And we shall lead...

And lend our voices only 
To sounds of freedom 
No longer lend our strength 
To that which we wish 
To be free from 
Fill your lives 
With love and bravery 
And we shall lead 
A life uncommon
