*Additional readers in the song are listed below the lyrics.

Sing a song of courage,
Sing a song of love,
Sing a song of hope for tomorrow!
Sing a song of justice and liberty,
Sing a song of purpose and unity.
As we lift our voices
In this joyful song,
We will find that together,
We are strong.

We sing for all the pioneers;
We strive to continue their fight.
Sing for our children, our legacy,
Of building a future that's bright.
We sing of faith, of hope, and of love,
Of understanding, and peace.
Sing for our struggle for equality;
Discrimination will cease!
We sing of sorrow, of pain from the past;
Of hope, and healing, and victory!
Victory, at last!

Sing a song of courage!
Sing a song of love!
Sing a song of hope for a brighter day!
As we lift our voices
In this joyful song,
We will find that together,
As we sing together,
As we strive together—

We are stronger together!

You’ll Never Walk Alone

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein
Arrangement by Mac Huff

When you walk through a storm, hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At the end of the storm is a golden sky,
And the sweet, silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on,
With hope in your heart,
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone!
Alone!
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Though your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart,
And you'll never,
No you'll never walk alone.
You'll never walk,
You'll never walk,
You'll never walk!
You'll never walk alone.
Walk on!
Walk on!

Words and Music by Dan Davison

Ritmo.
Batir las manos also ritmo.
Habilmente,
Batir las manos also ritmo.

Canten en coro gozoso.
Con amor you esperanza.
Cantaremos en ritmo,
Cantaremos en coro,
Cantaremos, canta en ritmo.
Ritmo.

Levanten sus voces.
Levanta su corazon.
Con instrumentos musicales,
Cantaremos de libertad you de amor.
Hagan en harmonia,
Vamos a cantar ya jugar.
Todas gentes,
Todas voces,
Habilmente con todas voces con instrumentos con esperanza you con ritmo.
Batir las manos also ritmo.
Batir las manos con toda la gente,
Con todas voces, con alegria you con gozo!

Con amor you esperanza!
Cantaremos de paz!
Cantaremos de amor!
Cantaremos con allegria you con gozo!
Ritmo!
