Stand Together and Speak Out


Here I stand

Even though

It seems wise for me to go

Seems by now

You should know

I will never go.

While enemies approach us

We’ll fight on for things held dearest

Often when hope wanes victory is nearest

Night and day

Throughout this fight

We’ll hold true to what is right

We’ve built a bond that lasts forever;

This much is true

My darling, I will stand by you

You can be sure that I will stay

Till we’ve made the world what it should be

Until all people are finally free

We’ll fight on despite the cost

We will make the Dream come true!

I will stand with you!
