This song is by Voices of America and appears on the album Hands Across America (1986).

Original video
This sky is so serene
Has felt the kiss of countless dreams
And this earth, it smells so sweet
Cradles us all in its great heartbeat

So we must learn to love each other
See that man over there, he's my brother

And when he laughs (I laugh)
And when he cries (I cry)
And when he need me
I'll be right there by his side

Hands across America
Hands across this land I love
Divided we fall, united we stand
Hands across America

Mothers and fathers (Mothers and fathers)
Daughters and sons (Daughters and sons)
Should be living together as one
And I can't help thinking again and again
The heart of a stranger beats the same as a friend

So we must learn to love each other
See those people other there, they're my sister and brother

And when they laugh (I laugh)
And when they cry (I cry)
And when they need me
I'll be right there by their side

Hands across America
Hands across this land I love
Divided we fall, united we stand
Hands across America

We are the river of hope
That runs through the valley of fear
And there's a lady whose smile shines upon us
Saying "All are welcome here"

So we must learn to love each other
See that man over there, he's my brother

And when he laughs (I laugh)
And when he cries (I cry)
And when he needs me
I'll be right there, right there by his side
Oh

Hands across America
Hands across this land I love
Divided we fall, united we stand
Hands across America

Hands across America (Oh, across America)
Hands across this land I love (This land I love)
Divided we fall (Stand up)
United we stand (Ooh, stand up)
Hands across America

Hands across America (Hands across America)
Hands across this land I love
Divided we fall (Stand up)
United we stand (Stand up)
Hands across America

Hands across America
Hands across this land I love (This land I love)
Divided we fall, united we stand...
