lyrics

Oh do not despair
Embrace a life unfair
The other side awaits
Soon we’ll pass the last of gates

Flower fields rejoice
Even as the roots are soiled
The songs of our past ought carry forever
The path our forebearers toiled

Oh do not despair
Take in the morning air
Sink your feet in the cold dew
Mark the step, embrace the life anew

Dearest father, dry your eyes
Mother, break this thread of shame
Though we may part the sea
Our colors are ne’er the same

Oh do not despair
Take in the sights so fair
My heart will always long for home
How ever far we may roam

Sons and daughters, stand tall
Don’t surrender or fall
Sing a song to cease this war
Our spirits soar evermore

Oh do not despair
Embrace a life unfair
The other side still awaits
Soon we’ll pass the very last of gates

Oh do not despair
Embrace this life unfair
My heart longs for home
Where all strifes end
No more regrets to send
We’ll let our blood take a stand
Promised Land, O Promised Land
I see you at last

If I ever had a dream
I pray this love to last
