SONGS:

One Foot/Rise With Love by Melanie DeMore

You gotta’ put one foot front of the the other
and lead with love (4x)

ECHO AFTER THE LEADER:
Don’t give up hope,
You’re not alone
Don’t you give up
Keep movin’ on.

Lift up your eyes
Don’t you despair
Look up ahead
The path is there.

Lift up your voice
And proudly sing
We must be heard
Above everything

I know you’re scared
And I’m scared too,
But here I am
Right next to you
