Susan Kane: Listen

Ring the Bells

(Susan Kane)

RING THE BELLS 

For many long years the wells had run dry

Till the lightning come and tear up the sky

We watched the fireworks rip the heavens in two

Sing hallelujah, our trials are through

 

Ring the bells and beat the drum

Sing hallelujah, the ship has come

Throw off your shackles, your work is done

Ring the bells, the ship has come

 

Then the tracks were flooded, there was no way through

Bailing, swimming, pushing on through

And just before our arms gave out

Sing hallelujah, give a righteous shout

 

Standing and waiting for that golden barge

Despair and trouble they were looming large

 

And starving we cooked up a bitter root stew

The proud were humbled, what we did must do

We stand as equals, this ship welcomes all

Sing hallelujah, give a joyful call
