lyrics

There's a ship that bears the name Inheritance
It's pulled by golden chains from where it ends
No sail, no need for oar
With calm assurance carries on
And those aboard the ship
Were once among the ones that scoffed at it
But not a single one was lost to it
The sealed of the Inheritance
They sing

We will treasure and we will hold on
To the light, the light before us
We'll be confident, we'll be bold if
If we know the light is for us
On forever we'll see and know and
We will ever be lights reflecting
The Inheritance, The Inheritance
We will treasure and we will hold on

The darkness of the waves
Are death, and death we know
Was stripped and made
The shadow of the joy
The light creates
For those of the inheritance
The deeper we're brought down
Inside the darkest shadows
Deeper found
Where joy was full and light was shining down
For those who would believe
They sing

We will treasure and we will hold on
To the light, the light before us
We'll be confident, we'll be bold if
If we know the light is for us
On forever we'll see and know and
We will ever be lights reflecting
The Inheritance, The Inheritance
We will treasure and we will hold on

La la la , La la la, La la la
La la la , La la la, La la la
La la la , La la la, La la la

La la la , La la la, La la la
La la la , La la la, La la la
La la la , La la la, La la la

We will treasure and we will hold on
To the light, the light before us
We'll be confident, we'll be bold if
If we know the light is for us
On forever we'll see and know and
We will ever be lights reflecting
The Inheritance, The Inheritance
We will treasure and

We will treasure and we will hold on
To the light, the light before us
We'll be confident, we'll be bold if
If we know the light is for us
On forever we'll see and know and
We will ever be lights reflecting
The Inheritance, The Inheritance
We will treasure and we will hold on
