Lyrics

But as one bright star shines through the clouds at night...
And as one song rings clear above the roar of beasts...
We hold to one, one hope in these darkest of times.

Lost, a lamb in the night. Afraid and alone, with nowhere to hide.
All hope had gone from my heart and died left with nothing but pride.
Turned and tossed in the rain - a ship in a storm with nothing but pain.
My life a wandering mystery. Lost till I saw the light.
Lost until I saw the light.
Sweet Altana divine - the Goddess of dawn and mother of life.
Forgiving us and our faults inside. Soothing song she provides
Tears that fell on the land, she shed them for us, and all that she stands.
Her love for all that is good shines bright, there to show us the light
Now She has shown me the light.
But the road to freedom is long and the gates to Paradise far.
Bound by chains of fear and destruction, what weary souls we are.
But Her light will lead us from darkness. Her hand is already there to
Life me up (lift me up) take me hom (life me up) to the sky, high.
Now I've broken the chains that bore on my soul and kept me in pain.
My heart is steadfast and true for you. Bring me shelter from rain.
Since salvation I've found my spirits are up, my worries are down.
And now forever we all remain bleseed by Her light.
Blessed by Her glorious light. (Yes we are)
Blessed in Her glorious light. (Yes we are)
Yes we are. We are Blessed in Her glorious light.
