A Hymn for the Invisible

Every night it’s the same thing
You try to sleep but your mind’s racing
Trying to keep a job, trying to keep a home
It feels that way, but you’re not alone

I wish I could tell you that we’re all free, free
And maybe someday we’ll be
I wish I could tell you we’re all seen, seen
Until then, just give your hand to me

And we’ll sing, Lord, how we’ll sing
Our voices will rise and ring
From roadside to hilltop
A chorus they can’t stop
Our stories told on the wind

You’re adrift and can’t make sense
Of worlds inside and out full of turbulence
You try to laugh, you try to keep it inside
But you know some things a smile can’t hide

I wish I could tell you that we’re all free, free
And maybe someday we’ll be
I wish I could tell you we’re all seen, seen
Until then, just give your hand to me

And we’ll sing, Lord, how we’ll sing
Our voices will rise and ring
From roadside to hilltop
A chorus they can’t stop
Our stories told on the wind

A single candle
It don’t burn too bright
But there’s not a fire
A million can’t light

We’ll sing, Lord, how we’ll sing
Our voices will rise and ring
From roadside to hilltop
A chorus they can’t stop
Our stories told on the wind
