We are One – Lyrics

by

 To all who care

 Sharing from a volunteer friend for another 

heart – warming New Year :

 The things that matter most in our lives are not fantastic or grand.

 They are the moments when we touch one another,

when we are there in the most attentive or caring way.

This simple and profound intimacy is the love that we all long for.

 These moments of touching and being touched can become

a foundation for a path with heart,

and they take place in the most immediate and direct way.

Mother Teresa put it like this:

“In this life we cannot do great things.

We can only do small things with great love.”

[ Lion King : Music by Tom Snow,

lyrics by Marty Panzer & Mark Feldman ]

 You go through life you’ll see

There is so much that we

Don’t understand

And the only thing we know

Is things don’t always go

The way we planned

But you’ll see every day

That we’ll never turn away

When it seems all your dreams come undone

 We will stand by your side

Filled with hope and filled with pride

We are more than we are

We are one

 If there’s so much I must be

Can I still just be me

The way I am?

 Can I trust in my own heart

Or am I just one part

Of some big plan?

 Even those who are gone

Are with us as we go on

Your journey has only begun

Tears of pain, tears of joy

One thing nothing can destroy

Is our pride, deep inside

We are one

 We are one, you and I

We are like the earth and sky

One family under the sun

 All the wisdom to lead

All the courage that you need

You will find when you see

We are one
