The trials you now are facing
They are not greater than your will
For there is nothing under heaven
You cannot overcome
See the door that lies before you
And know this too shall pass
The confrontation of your fears
In strength drawn from the past
Where the silent voices whisper
Find the course that is your own
And however great the obstacle
You will never be alone
For I have watched the path of angels
And I have heard the heavens roar
There is strife within the tempest
But there is calm within the eye of the storm

In fragments of an instant
The chaos has returned
And all that was left to sentiment
Beneath the banner burned
And as that voice was slow receded
Into echoes, memory
My doubts were re-ignited
And fear awakened from its sleep

I believe in what I fight for
And I have paid for it with pain
I am here because my contributions
May help turn this fate away
And all who stood by and did nothing
Who are they to criticise?
The sacrifices of others
Our blood has bought their lives

This is the moment of truth
At the point of no return
Place faith in your convictions
As the boundaries start to blur

There is no love untouched by hate
No unity without discord
There is no courage without fear
There is no peace without a war
There is no wisdom without regret
No admiration without scorn
There is strife within the tempest
But there is calm in the eye of the storm

The pages of our history
Are written by the hand
With eyes and ears and prejudice
Too far removed to understand
And so the heroes of the ages
Are stripped of honesty and love
To make them seem less noble
And hide what we can become

If you find the courage within you
To face the path ahead
It matters not the outcome
If what you will gain instead
Is a heart deepened in the knowing
That experience carves the soul
And the very thing that empties you
Shall surely make you whole
Where the silent voices whisper
Find the course that is your own
And however great the obstacle
You will never be alone
For I have watched the path of angels
And I have heard the heavens roar
There is strife within the tempest
But calm in the eye of the storm

    General CommentThis.... this is my favourite song of all times. I've loved it right from the start. My favourite part has to be the chorus-like bit, starting with "there is no love untouched by hate", it's sung so strongly and with everlasting power.

    Such a beautiful song.

    That always gives me chills. This song has strengthened my faith and love of Sophia(God) my beautiful mother. We were chosen to be here to fight for the truth that we will find if we can open our hearts and minds enough to see what is right in front of us.

    "The pages of our history..." This verse is very important to me, I always felt fault in the bible, and believed that the ones who wrote didnt understand the meaning of all that happened. Alot of people dont realize that man changed the words of our savior to better fortune them at the time. And that there was alot edited out of the bible and total scriptures thrown away because they were "to far removed" to understand the importance of, say, a woman's view.

    MemoryWhen I first heard this song, I was barely able to keep a roof over my head. I had no car, so I often had to walk 12 total miles to from my 8-hour on-your-feet-all-day job. It was the second hardest point in my life. The first verse hit me so hard. I listened to it over and over everyday. The first verse was taped to my inbox at work. Last year I went through something even worse, and the song was still there for me.
