Lyrics

Battle Hymn of the Resistance


When we rise up and claim our power

The Good, it cannot fall.

We take up the shield of service

To defend the rights of all.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


We defend the Constitution,

Rule of Law across the land.

When blind Justice, She is threatened

We will not let it stand.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


We tend the Hearth of Kindness,

Soul of Democracy.

Welcome tired, poor, huddled masses

Yearning to breathe free.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


Our Healer’s Cup we offer

To all souls who have need.

We work to heal our nation

Of hatred and of greed.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


Our visionary garden blooms

With dreams we bring to birth,

Of what society can be

If we dare to love the Earth.


 [Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.


So rise up and claim your power

Together we will grow.

See America as we should be

And we will make it so.


[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

and will make things right.
