Unison In Harmony

Lyrics for printing

Soaring skywards, leaping sideways
Do or die words cleave the air
Joy and laughter, morning after
Raise the rafters we don’t care
If the roof’s beyond repair.
Raise the rafters, raise the rafters
Raise the rafters, we don’t care
If the roof’s beyond repair.

Sisters, brothers, to all others
Let this be our guiding star
Hearts on fire, stand together
Hear the music from afar
What we sing is what we are.
Hear the music, hear the music
Hear the music from afar
What we sing is what we are.

Over hills and over valleys
Over mountains, over seas
Nation shall sing unto nation
Until nations cease to be
Unison in harmony.
Until nations, until nations
Until nations cease to be
Unison in harmony.
