On the road to freedom there’s a sign

Marking all those heroes back in time

Who wore a crown of thorn for those as yet unborn

Answered to the call and held the line



Never have so many thanked so few

What a brave and selfless thing to do

The odds were stacked against them

But they came shining through

Never have so many thanked so few

Human spirit is a wondrous thing

Marvel as it soars on silver wing

For when the shadows fall you’ll still hear it call

Holding out the promise of a spring


Those who by their word or by their deed

Feed the starving hopes of all in need

May number but a few yet by what they do

Bleed today to see tomorrow freed


Never Have So Many
