Hope In The Rubble

Song for the  storm victims in Moore, Ok


Arisen from the ashes of ruin

Broken only temporary

We will rebuild

We will overcome

To live again

After the devil's destrution

We will find a new day

Another dawn

Where God will guide and provide




There is hope in the rubble

If we never give up

Neve give in

Fight back

Stand tall

Knocked down small

The losses can not be in vein

No matter how grim

We must know

The sun will shine again


Moore is less for now

But we won't back down

From the iron will of our people

Together as one

We will be as an army

Proving no matter

The ill winds that blow

We will be warriors

Made of sterner stuff

Then even the good lord above knows




Twisted and tossed

This way and that

Homes, dreams, lives

In an instant

Wiped away

But we are not shattered

We are strong

A people and a state


Resolved to remember

Those we lost

The places torn down

Determined to hold fast 

To his hand and still believe


Chorus 2 x

My thoughts and prayers are the victims of this terrible tragedy. Your lyrics are a fine tribute

to the spirit and determination of those folks who were affected.
