You Are Not Alone

Chapter 1


You are not alone

When the bomb blasts echo in the night

And guns fire in the streets

You are not alone

When the pain clouds your mind

And good men fall to the ground

You are not alone

When hatred makes its mark

And evil comes to bear

We are with you

We are with you in the night

We are with you in the streets

We are with you in the stadiums

In the seats filled with blood

We are with you in the countries

In nations far and wide

From across oceans

Across mountains

And miles of uncharted ground

If our backs our broken, if our hearts are heavy

If the way is lined with knives

We will come

We will come in the cold of the winter

Across any obstacles

And in the darkness of the night

Know the sun only ever sets

So that it may rise again

So we will stand beside you

Until the dawn is shining down

The chains will be broken

The wounds will be healed

And hatred will meet its end

The world is standing with you

Shouting high and loud

That evil will never triumph

When good men stand their ground
