Weeping in The Promised Land Lyrics

Today…

Soldiers of the Pharaoh
Climbing up the walls
Weeping in the Promised Land
Racing through the chambers
As they barricade the halls
Weeping in the Promised Land

Demons of the devil
With darkness in their eyes
Weeping in the Promised Land
With divisive flags of hatred
Fueled by narcissistic lies
Weeping in the Promised Land

The power of the people
Lost in actions harsh and cruel
Weeping in the Promised Land
While the Pharaoh’s threats and edicts
Empower soulless, empty fools
Weeping in the Promised Land

Weeping, weeping, weeping
In the Promised Land
Weeping, weeping, weeping
In the Promised Land

Yes, our country’s spirit’s shaking
And it’s rattled to it’s core
Weeping in the Promised Land
But the Pharaoh’s power’s crumbling
Before freedom’s mighty roar
Weeping in the promised Land

Where good men and women stand tall
And don’t bow before false kings
Weeping in the Promised Land
Where the song of freedom rings out
Rising far above the din
Weeping in the Promised Land

But when faith and hope and love
Grow by leaps and bounds
The tears of sadness and of sorrow
Will stop pouring on the ground
As the dreams of every one of us
Take root and sow the sound
That stops all painful weeping…
All weeping in the Promised Land
