We are singing through the hard times, Singing through the hard times; Working for the good times to come. We are singing through the hard times, Singing through the hard times; Working for the good times to come. Sometimes our living gets so dark and lonesome, It seems like there's nothing we can do. So we reach out to each other, and raise a song together, And let our voices carry us through. We are singing ... And when the war clouds gather, it's so easy to get angry, And just as hard not to be afraid; But you know in your own heart, no matter what happens, You just can't turn your back and walk away. We are singing ... So hand in hand together, we help each other carry The light of peace within us every day; If we can learn to live it, to walk and talk and give it, That world of peace won't be so far away. We are singing ... We are singing ...
