We Sing Because

A song of praise, peace, and love. [Includes MP3 recording and PDF with full score.]

From deep within us comes a song of praise.

Our voices rise to bless the promise of the day.

We sing God’s presence with us here, we sing to cast out ev’ry fear,

We sing because from deep within us comes a song of praise.


We meet each other at the well of peace.

We add our tears and cry that ev’ry war must cease.

We cry not for ourselves alone, we cry for peace in ev’ry home,

We cry because from deep within us springs a well of peace.


And all around us shines the light of love!

We cast a ray as bright as any sun above.

We shout to light a weary world, we shout a healing pow’r unfurled,

We shout because from deep within us shines the light of love!
