LYRICS:
Chorus: We will not rest till the storm is over
We will not lay this burden down
We will keep each other strong
We will love and carry on
Till we stand all together on solid ground

It’s been a long hard journey on a winding road
So many have gone before us; they carried a heavy load
But they went there singin’ as they made their way
Now it’s in their footsteps we follow as we work today

I know that you’re weary… we all feel the pain
Sometimes the actions of the world will try your soul again
But I believe there’s a better day and it’s comin’ our way
That’s why we’re raising our voices as we work today

All around us there’s hatred… all around us there’s fear
Violence touches our lives and the message is clear
We mourn our martyrs… in our hearts they’ll stay
And we’ll sing “We Shall Overcome” and go on our way!

LYRICS:
In the shelter of each other,
In the shelter of our lives;
We are open, We are dreaming,
We are hopeful, We are wise.

Many times the weight of the world crashes in,
We feel angry and afraid.
We start to lose our sense of hope,
our sense of direction.

Isolation we have learned
Will not bring much in return
If we truly cannot learn
To live as one.

You know that many times the weight of the world crashes in,
We feel broken and drained.
We start to lose our sense of joy,
our sense of connection.

And though our history remains,
It’s our actions we must change
If we hope to heal our planet,
We must stand.
