And the strife will make me stronger
As my maker leads me onward
I’ll be marching in that number
So let it ring
I’m gonna let it ring to Jesus
Cause I know he loves me too
And I get down on my knees and I pray the same as you
Let it ring, let it ring
‘Cause one day we’ll all be free
Let it ring
Amy Ray first became known as “one of the Grammy-winning Indigo Girls” and later as an out lesbian. Let it Ring is from her second solo album Prom. I first heard the song performed at an Indigo Girls concert, where Amy dedicated it to “the guy with the anti-sodomy sign” outside the venue.
