lyrics

A great cloud of old friends to follow
Their faith rains upon the land for all to share and grow!

In 1649 the diggers stood up tall
They defied the kings and shared the land with all
They bowed before the One true God and let Him alone claim
All is His and given through His name, His name!

Stand up now, stand up now, diggers all, stand up now
The land is yours, the land is mine, the land is ours, there are no lines
Stand up now, diggers all, stand up now!

Today the land throughout the world is labeled "property"
Their rulers block the nomads' feet from the ancient path of free
Empires within and out have crushed the good earth down
Push through the cracks! Peel the labels back and join the diggers sound!

They may have crushed your plows, they may have crushed your bones
But while the clan of ol' King George rotted with all they owned
The diggers' voice still remains, even now, even now
They fill our wings they show us how to stand up now!

Stand up now, stand up now
Diggers all stand up now
The land is yours the land is mine
Owned by none but the Divine
Stand up now, diggers all stand up now

A great cloud of old friends to follow
Their faith rains upon the land for all to share and grow
