Member of the World Community

Intro:

I may be young
But I have a responsibility
To be the best, that I can be

To care for you, like I care for me
To want for you what I want for me

As a member of the world community…

Member of the world community
Connected to God’s humanity
(Don’t want to be) a part of a world where people are not free
(I have to be) a member of the world community

World community
I have to be
One in the number of all humanity
No color, no class, no gender, is more
Important than the love that God has in store
For me, for you
But what we have to do
Is change how we recognize the truth
It’s not coming from the media
It’s coming from the hearts
Of people all around the world
Who need a fresh start
Peace, no war
No senseless death
Who want a way to celebrate God
In breath
Life
Less strife
Light
Hope
Futures bright
Change
Grow
Less wrong
More right
Pull together
It is worth the fight
Sing the alphabet
And make the rhythm tight
Add a little flavor
With a bit of spice
Change your life
Sing!
