I’LL BE THE ONE   
©2000 Sally Fingerett, Green Fingers Music, BMI 

 

Here in this land I am home - I’m not alone, not alone
I’m just one of many who belong - I’m not alone, I’m not alone
For so many years I have dreamed of this day
When I’m put to the test, I am asked to stand and take my place
I’m asked to be strong like a soldier
To always remember, and carry the truth on my shoulder
And be a faithful protector of this light that’s shining

I’ll be the one, to carry on, to carry on
Mighty and faithful and strong
I’ll be the one, to carry on, to carry on

Here in this dessert I will stand - I’m not alone - not alone
My soul now belongs to this land - my future is here, in every grain of sand
History tells us that there’d be a day
When we’re put to the test, we are asked to stand and take our place
We’re asked to be strong like a soldier
To always remember, and carry the truth on our shoulder
And be the faithful protector of this light that’s shining

I’ll be the one, to carry on, to carry on
For thousands of years I’ve been strong
I’ll be the one, to carry on, to carry on

I see these mountains and oceans
I hear of past generations
I have my own destination
It is I who’ve been chosen

I’ll be the one, to carry on, to carry on
I dedicate a promise to go on - I’ll be the one 
In this world in this life I will be - this eternal light
