Someday the world will see our unity and not our difference
Someday the world will know the pow'r we hold and it will listen.
Though it will try to divide us--
make us hide to disunite us, we'll show them...

When we speak, we speak with one voice,
when we sing, we join together and sing our joy;
and when we love, we become like family.
Let's make them believe it…the world will see.

And when we laugh, we laugh big…we laugh so loudly
And when we dance, we dance full out, we dance proudly
And when we cry, I know that you will be there for me
Let's make them believe it…the world will see.

So I'll do, all I can do, to love and trust and not to tear apart
And will you promise to stand by us for who we are?
Such a beautiful vision; come and join us in our mission to show them...

When we speak, we speak with one voice,
when we sing, we join together and sing our joy;
and when we love, we become like family.
Let's make them believe it…the world will see.

You are not defined by your ability, you are not defined by your utility
but by the size of your heart and the gift you are, so give and live, forgive;
And start to draw the circle wide with everybody inside
looking out for the other, making room for another

It won’t matter the color of your skin
or where you live or the clothes you're in.
I only care that you have eyes to see
just who I am and see me for me.

Words written in collaboration with the Roosevelt High School Concert Choir.

CLICK HERE: Kyle Pederson performance notes
This piece was a collaborative project with the students in the Roosevelt High School Concert Choir (Sioux Falls, SD). Their school motto is "We are one"...and they seek to build an inclusive community throughout the school. The choral program is especially committed to fostering a welcoming environment where the uniqueness and individuality of each person is affirmed--AND where the common threads of humanity are celebrated. The students and I crafted lyrics together, based on discussions of what sort of community they wanted to be, and what they wanted "oneness/unity" to look, feel, and sound like.

This piece is dedicated to all students and choirs who seek to build caring, inclusive communities in their classrooms.

This score is available in Printed or ePrint format at checkout (More Information)
