Raise Your Banners Knitters John Tams, new words Jane Lewis arr Belgian Palestine choir

1. Bound together through the land, needles clickeing in our hands
Peaceful knitters make a stand, craftiness will win the day

Ch: Raise your knitting high, stitch by stitch and row by row
Plain and purl will never die, raise your knitting high

2. Those who knit in face of strife, those who purl for liberty,
crochet for a better life, pink to keep the future free.

3. Though the struggle brings us pain, though the struggle brings us tears.
Ours will be the final gain, we will hear the victory cheers.
