In the darkest hour of night
Alone in the falling rain
Don’t despair don’t give up hope
The flame it still remains

A torch in the sky
Though the light it seems to fade
But don’t give up we hear your cry
Your spirit still remains
See the flame

In countries far and wide
There are those who truly care
You’re not alone no need to hide
There are those who hear

The yearning of your soul
Across the wind swept plain
This cry for Love that we all know
The cry of those in pain
See the flame

Human dignity is what we ask for all
The right to live upon this earth
To be proud and stand tall

Every person’s of noble birth
There’s freedom for us all
To break the chains of those oppressed
For this we cannot wait
See The Flame

Today we rise as one
Give hope to those in fear
Reach out to you with all our hearts
You know that someone cares

In a world that seems so cold
There are those who will lead the way
That share the dream across this land
A dream for all today
See the Flame

See the Flame
It’s burning, burning brighter
See the Flame

Freedom,
Freedom rights for all

See the Flame
It’s burning, burning brighter
See the Flame
