Lyrics

WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD

MUSIC AND LYRICS: RICHARD HOLLEY

DON’T FEAR THE DARKNESS, BECAUSE YOU’RE CHILDREN OF THE LIGHT.
BELIEVE IN GOD’S GOODNESS AND YOUR SPIRIT WILL BURN BRIGHT.
DON’T BE AFRAID TO REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE,
WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD.

WE WENT OFF ON A JOURNEY, SUCH A LONG, LONG TIME AGO.
WE TURNED OUR BACKS ON OUR FATHER, SO HE HAD TO LET US GO.
WE CAME TO THIS STRANGE LAND THAT WE’D NEVER GET TO KNOW.
WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD.

DON’T CURSE THE DARKNESS, BUT LIGHT A CANDLE FOR THE WHOLE WORLD TO SEE.
RAISE IT UP, RAISE IT HIGH UP WITH ME.
(YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD)
WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD, IF WE TRY WITH OUR WHOLE HEART AND SOUL,
THEN YOU’LL GET TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

DON’T FEAR THE DARKNESS, BECAUSE YOU’RE CHILDREN OF THE LIGHT.
BELIEVE IN GOD’S MERCY, AND YOUR SPIRIT WILL BURN BRIGHT.
DON’T BE AFRAID TO REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE,
WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD.

SO IT’S TIME TO COME HOME NOW, TO GOD FROM WHOM WE CAME.
HE HAS ALWAYS LOVED US, SO THERE’S NO-ONE LEFT TO BLAME.
LET’S LOVE EACH OTHER, AND PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME.
WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD.

DON’T CURSE THE DARKNESS, BUT LIGHT A CANDLE FOR THE WHOLE WORLD TO SEE.
RAISE IT UP, RAISE IT HIGH UP WITH ME.
(YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD)
WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD, IF WE TRY WITH OUR WHOLE HEART AND SOUL,
THEN YOU’LL GET TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE.

DON’T BE AFRAID TO REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE,
YOU HAVEN'T FALLEN ALL THAT FAR.
WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD.

DON’T BE AFRAID TO REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE,
TO FOLLOW YOUR BRIGHT STAR.
YOU ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD
