Lyrics:

Sometimes things happen that we don’t understand.
Helpless and sad, life feels out of hand.
How do we carry on feeling this way?
What do we do to feel less afraid and to make our world safer – a place we all can thrive?
Help me to feel glad I’m alive.  

Please hold my hand and comfort me. Help me believe in humanity.
To rebuild trust will take a while.  Please help me to find a reason to smile -
Because we need hope that there’ll be peace
Let there be love in our community.  

When you feel hopeless, remember it’s okay
Sadly there are times in life that we all feel this way
Reach out to others and be a good friend
It’s only together that we can begin again

So hold my hand and comfort me. Help me believe in humanity.
To rebuild trust will take a while. Let’s start together, please help me to smile
Because we need hope that there’ll be peace
Let there be love in our community

We need hope that there’ll be peace
Let there be love in our community
