HOLD TO FAITH
(And Carry It On)
If they tell you believers are all only fools;
if they tell you that dreamers are fantasy's tools;
if they say that the good times are all past and gone -
hold to Faith - and carry it on !

If a dark wave is rolling swiftly your way;
if it looks like more trouble is winning the day;
if it seems like the world is all turning wrong
hold to Faith - and carry it on !

Chorus
When many loud voices are shouting of doom,
and it seems like the Road is too dusty and long,
if the world's growling noises are spoiling the tune,
package your Faith in a Troubadour's song.
Hold up your light, and carry it on !

In the silence of midnight, you may hear a call,
that summons your longing, and the hope of it all,
join with your friends to wait for the dawn.
Hold to Faith - and carry it on !

Every prayer that ascends; every comforting word,
to a friend or a stranger, does not go unheard.
Up above it is noted, and written upon
the Records of Angels, who carry it on.

Chorus
When many loud voices are shouting of doom,
and it seems like the Road is too dusty and long,
if the world's growling noises are spoiling the tune,
package your Faith in a Troubadour's song.
Hold up your light, and carry it on !
