Children of the light, ooh
Children of the light, ooh

People Work And People Talk
And Think That They’re Alive
But Ask Them What Their Lives About
They’re Quick To Run And Hide

People Laugh And People Cry
But Never Realize
That All The World’s Tomorrows Lie
In What They Feel Inside

So, Take My Hand
And Walk In The Sunshine
Take My Hand,
Come Out Of The Night

We Can Stand,
Despite All The Dark Lies
And We Can Build A World That Is Right
We Can Be The Children Of The Light

Children Of The Light,
Walk Together
All Of My Brothers,
Walk Together
All Of My Sisters,
Walk Forever
All Of My Children,
Children Smile

The Time Has Come For Everyone
To Stop And Look Around
To See Just Where We Started From
And Ponder Where We’re Bound

The Ship We’re On Has Lost Its Way
Just pretended it’s due
The day each man is open to
anothers point of view

So, Take My Hand
And Walk In The Sunshine
Take My Hand, From Out Of The Night
We Can Stand, Despite All The Dark Lies
And We Can Build A World That Is Right
We Can Be The Children Of The Light

Everybody!

So, Take My Hand
And Walk In The Sunshine
Take My Hand, From Out Of The Night
We Can Stand, Despite All The Dark Lies
And We Can Build A World That Is Right
We Can Be The Children Of The Light

[Julie Windsor – thank you for the lyrics!]
