Original video
Battered and torn, still I can see the light
Tattered and worn, but I must kneel to fight
Friend of mine, what can you spare?
I know sometimes it gets cold in there

When my legs no longer carry
And the warm wind chills my bones
I just reach for Mother Mary
And I shall not walk alone

Hope is alive while we're apart
Only tears speak from my heart
Break the chains that hold us down
We shall be forever bound

And when I'm tired and weary
And a long, long way from home
I just reach for Mother Mary
And I shall not walk alone

Beauty that we left behind
How shall we forever find
Set aside our weight in sin
So that we can live again

When my legs no longer carry
And the warm wind chills my bones
I just reach for Mother Mary
And I shall not walk alone
And I shall not walk alone
And I shall not walk alone
Ooh, I shall not walk alone
