Battered and torn still I can see the light tattered and worn but I must kneel to fight

Friend of mine what can't you spare I know some times it gets cold in there

When my legs no longer carry and the warm wind chills my bones I reach for Mother Mary and I

Shall not walk alone

Hope is alive while we're apart only tears speak from my heart break the chains that hold us

Down and we shall be forever bound

When I'm tired and weary and a long way from home I reach for Mother Mary and I shall not

Walk alone

Beauty that we left behind how shall we tomorrow find

Set aside our weight in sin so that we can live again

When my legs no longer carry and the warm wind chills my bones I reach for Mother Mary and I

Shall not walk alone

Burn To Shine
