same rain

"I have learned that community reaches far beyond what eyes can see and though miles divide us, at some point we're all washed by the same rain." ~Pat Humphries

In a many colored garden we are growing side by side
We will rise all together, we will rise.
With the sun and rain upon us, not a row shall be denied
We will rise all together, we will rise.

We will rise like the ocean
We will rise like the sun
We will rise all together, we will rise
In our many colored fabrics made from strands of common thread
We will rise all together, we will rise.

We can feed our grain to cattle and the rich man will be fed
Or we'll feed our grain to people so that millions will have bread.

We will rise like the ocean
We will rise like the sun
We will rise all together, we will rise
No more will there be hunger in these strands of common thread.
We will rise all together, we will rise.

In the cold of fear and hatred, clothed in dignity we stand
We have pieced this quilt together, linking hearts with stitching hands.

We will rise like the ocean
We will rise like the sun
We will rise all together, we will rise
We are spirits drawn together tightly by our common threads.
We will rise all together, we will rise.

From our children to our elders, from all nations we will rise
May respect for all our differences enhance our common ties.

We will rise like the ocean
We will rise like the sun
We will rise all together, we will rise
We will buid a global family, strengthened by our common threads.
We will rise all together, we will rise.
