Transcription

When we are victims of unharnessed hate,
ambushed by evil invading our space,
threat'ning the values that we all embrace
Your light rekindles loving grace.

Shine through our tears and make rainbows appear; appear;
shine through our tears (through our tears) and make rainbows appear.

When, with no warning, such tumult we see;
gunshots and panic and nowhere to flea;
such terror and hatred engulf lives in hell
Your light can break the devil's spell.

Shine through our tears and make rainbows appear; appear;
shine through our tears (through our tears) and make rainbows appear.

When in this dreadfulness the innocent die;
snatched from their families without a goodbye;
grieving and emptiness encumber our souls
Your light's the love that will console.

Shine, Lord shine through our tears, (through our tears) and make rainbows appear;
Shine, Lord shine through our tears, (through our tears) and make rainbows appear.
Shine, shine, shine, shine.
Shine through our tears; shine through our tears.
Oh, Lord, shine through out tears and make rainbows appear, rainbows appear.
