We move for all mankind, a million miles from everything we've ever known
We're on their hearts and minds, a million heads are bowed to bring us safely home
Hemmed in by emptiness, a million ways that everything could be undone
This hollow in my chest is filled with reasons not to sing but i found one, i know

We are not alone, we feel an unseen love
We are sons and heirs of grace
We are children of a light that never dims
A love that never dies, keep your chin up child
And wipe the tears from your eyes

In sleep we saw ourselves, a million years we had been waiting there it seems
While someone weaves a spell, a million stars look on in witness to our dreams

We are not alone, we feel an unseen love
We are sons and heirs of grace
We are children of a light that never dims
A love that never dies, keep you chin up child
And wipe the tears from youR eyes

We feel an unseen love
We are children of light

We are not alone, we feel an unseen love
We are sons and heirs of grace
We are children of a light that never dims
A love that never dies, keep you chin up child
And wipe the tears from youR eyes

Stand ready and tall, reflect the light

    I think this song is about our soldiers fighting overseas: "a million miles away", friends and family praying "heads bowed to bring us safely home". It's a song of hope: they are not alone, even surrounded by darkness they are protected by God, a "light that never dims and love that never dies."
    It could also apply to Christians in general, fighting sin and Satan. Don't give up, keep your chin up because you are a child of the Almighty and He always wins.
