lifeblood: songs: lyrics: let it ring


when you march
stand up straight
when you fill the world with hate
step in time
with your kind
and let it ring

and when you speak
against me
would you bring your family
say it loud
pass it down
and let it ring

and let it ring
to jesus
cause he sure'd be proud of you
you made fear
an institution
and it got the best of you
and let it ring in the name
of the one that set you free
oh let it ring

as i wander
through this valley
in the shadow of my doubting
i will not
be discounted
so let it ring

you can cite
the need for wars
call us infidels or whores
either way we'll
be your neighbor
so let it ring

and let it ring
in the name
of the man that set you free
and let it ring
let it ring

and the strife
will make me stronger
as my maker
leads me onward
i'll be marching
in that number
so let it ring

i'm gonna let it ring
to jesus
cause i know he loves me too
and i get down on my knees
and i pray the same as you
oh let it ring
oh let it ring
cause one day we'll all be free
oh let it ring
oh let it ring
(this little light of mine i'm gonna let it shine)
oh let it ring
(this little light of mine i'm gonna let it shine)
oh let it ring
(this little light of mine i'm gonna let it shine)
