Raise Up Your Banner

Through many years
And journeys long
We shared the taste
Of tears and song

If you should stumble
I'll lend a hand
That you might lift
Yourself again

Though paths confound
And all roads wind
The miles between
Cannot divide

And if I am needed
I'll double back
To help you get
Yourself on track

If others forsake you
And you see no allies
I will be your advocate
And stand by your side

If you feel defeated
If you fall or stammer
I will lift you up
I will raise your banner

And if dear friend
Through the darkest time
You see me falter
Please raise up mine
