Love Will Always Overcome
Dedicated to all my friends in Paris today.
You will never win with a gun in your hand
With hate in your heart and hate painted on your face
You can wound and you can kill but you have not won
For love will always triumph, love will always overcome.
You may spread fear and loathing wherever you go
But you will never defeat us with death or the gun
For justice will flow and your terror won’t reign
For it has been defeated when Christ rose again
Evil will come and may even stay for a while
And it might seem some battles we’ll lose
But the result has been fixed and the war has been won
So be not downhearted, fix your eyes on the son.
