Joe Offer Lyr Req: For the Godless March on Washington (84* d) ADD: We Would Be One (Finlandia) 09 Jan 21


Here's another song set to the tune of "Finlandia"

WE WOULD BE ONE
(Words by Samuel Anthony Wright, music by Sibelius)

We would be one as now we join in singing
our hymn of love, to pledge ourselves anew
to that high cause of greater understanding
of who we are, and what in us is true.
We would be one in living for each other
to show to all a new community.

We would be one in building for tomorrow
a nobler world than we have known today.
We would be one in searching for that meaning
which bends our hearts and points us on our way.
As one, we pledge ourselves to greater service,
with love and justice, strive to make us free.

#318 in Singing the Living Tradition, published by the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1993

Samuel Anthony Wright was the minister emeritus of the Marin Fellowship of Unitarians in San Rafael, California. He wrote this text for Unitarian and Universalist youth at their Continental Convention of 1953-54 (Source: Between the Lines: Sources for Singing the Living Tradition
