Hold up the light
Save the world from darkness
Hold up the light
Won't you please America

It's time for all of us
Who claim in God we trust
To take a stand
Let our voice be heard
Across the nation
To every man

If we are the light
It's time for all of us to fight
For what is right
We must work while it is day
Before the fall of night

Voices crying, young people dying
Lost, nowhere to run
So I'm asking, takes sacrificing
Time for us to come and
Hold up the light

Hold up the light
Save the world from darkness
Hold up the light
Won't you please America

Boys and girls
Can't you see
The kind of friend
Crack can be

Voices crying, young people dying
Lost, nowhere to run

So I'm asking, takes sacrificing
Time for us to come and
Hold up the light

Hold up the light
Save the world from darkness
Hold up the light
Won't you please America
