Lyrics to "Love Cannot Be Silenced"
Love cannot be silenced.
It never has.
It never will.
Let justice roll like a river from the oceans to the hills.
Rise up Sisters. Rise up.
And stand with you your heads held high.
We are faithful, loving, and wise.
Dancing along side by side.
With a Gospel vision to lead us.
And Holy Fire in our eyes.
