I've heard you hearts cry out
We are tired, we are weary, but we aren't worn out
set down you chains, until only faith remains
Set down you chains
And lend your voices only to sounds of freedom
No longer lent your strength to that

The Wailin' Jennys

This is the sound of one voice One spirit, one voice
The sound of one who makes a choice
This is the sound of one voice This is the sound of one voice

This is the sound of voices two The sound of me singin' with you
Helpin' each other to make it through
This is the sound of voices two This is the sound of voices two

This is the sound of voices three Singin' together in harmony
Surrendering to the mystery
This is the sound of voices three This is the sound of voices three

This is the sound of all of us Singin' with love and the will to trust
Leave the rest behind, it will turn to dust
This is the sound of all of us This is the sound of all of us

This is the sound of one voice One people, one voice
A song for every one of us
This is the sound of one voice This is the sound of one voice
