lyrics

Brothers and sisters
What am I to say to you
I don’t know what you’re going through
I have not seen what you have seen

Brothers and sisters
What am I to give to you
I don’t know where you’re going to
I only know where I have been

Though I am small and we are far away it seems
You are not alone I’m calling out your name

Singing love for the falling rain
Singing joy for the songs it brings
Singing peace like the river
Peace like the river
Peace like the river in spring

Brothers and sisters
I see the pain behind your eyes
The pain you’ve carried all your life
You cannot seem to let it go

Brothers and sisters
I’m calling out to you tonight
Above the noise and hateful lies
So stay with me lay down your load

Though I am small and we are far away it seems
You are not alone I’m calling out your name

Singing love for the falling rain
Singing joy for the songs it brings
Singing peace like the river
Peace like the river
Peace like the river in spring
