Story

I view the human race as one big family.  When we work together for the benefit of all, the world is a better place for each of us.

So, here it is--a song urging us to work together for social justice--AND YOU CAN DANCE TO IT!!  Ha!

Lyrics

Rise and Take a Stand

Copyright 1998 Dana Clark

We are a family

The human family

Working together

We will survive

We will reach out to the children

Who struggle just to stay alive

Rise and take a stand

Lend a helping hand

We'll feed the hungry

Shelter the homeless

Comfort the dying

Make peace, not war

We're in a desperate situation

Like we've never faced before

Rise and take a stand

Lend a helping hand

The world we're making

Will be our children

Will be their children's

On and on forevermore

Will it be a peaceful planet

Will it be a world of war

We can make it so much more

Rise and take a stand

Lend a helping hand

When we help someone

To help another

To help another

That helps us all

When so many people need you

Can you hear them when they call

Can you catch them when they fall

Rise and take a stand

Lend a helping hand
