As we walk together,
Open our hearts
To your tenderness.
Open our minds
To your understanding.
Open our lives
To your challenge.
We are one people, many nations,
Building hope through steps for peace.
One world with many barriers,
Breaking chains so we dance free.
One voice that shouts for justice
Shatters hatred, calls for change.
One God, one world, one people,
Turning tables, share the feast.
