"Belfry" as written by Maria Mckee, Steve Van Zant and Shane (mick Barakan) Fontayne....
Scarred, scourged, tattered
Vessels frayed and frail
The shield of faith is battered
But it will not lie down
To let defeat prevail

Pounding with a vengeance
Hearts that beat with light
For shining in the distance
A glimpse of the tower
Through the blood and fog

Belfry, Belfry
Belfry, ring victory's chimes for us
Belfry, ring victory's chimes for us

From the coldest mountain
To the deepest brine
Burst the shutters open
And let the glorious sound
Rip apart the sky

Belfry, Belfry
Belfry, ring victory's chimes for us
Belfry, ring victory's chimes for us

Belfry, Belfry
Belfry, ring victory's chimes for us
Belfry, ring victory's chimes for us

Belfry, hope has returned for good
Belfry, ring victory's chimes for us

Ring it, ring it
Ring it, ring it
Ring it, ring it
Ring it, ring it
Ring it

    General CommentThese are some of the greatest Song Lyrics ever written. I can't believe no one has commented yet. I suppose Lone Justice is a bit of a Hidden Treasure. This Sing has gotten me through many big battles in Life. I have a feeling Maria McKee wrote them, and Steven VanZandt (of Springsteen fame), wrote the music. "The Shield of Faith is battered, but IT WILL NOT LIE DOWN". I love that. The rest is brilliant Word Oicyures of fighting the Greatest Battles of Life, with only the knowledge that God is behind you, and the Bell Tower of Victory lies ahead (a Belfry is a Church Bell Tower). Thanks Maria, and Steven, and Lone Justice. The Album "Shelter" is an Underated Gem". I love the "Live from Radio 1" album on Spotify and ITunes as well! God bless you all
