The sound of one song
Can be heard on the winds of the mornin'
It's a prayer that this world we were born in
Will survive until it can be ours

In the sound of one song
All the children of earth stand united
Now a candle of peace has been lighted
And its glow can be seen from afar
And its message outshines every star

This planet must understand
That we're a family of man
And we won't let tomorrow slip through our hands

Our voice will be strong
'Cause it comes from the heart and the spirit
And we sing, so the whole world will hear it
And believe in the sound of one song

This planet must understand
That we're a family of man
And we won't let tomorrow slip through our hands

Our voice will be strong
'Cause it comes from the heart and the spirit
And we sing, so the whole world will hear it
And believe in the sound of one song

The sound of one song
Can be heard on the winds of the mornin'
It's a prayer that this world we were born in
Will survive until it can be ours

La la lala la lala la...
