Share Our Country: Lyrics by Gerri Wood

Share our country, share our city,
Share our country, share our city,
Share our country, share our city,
Come in peace today.

Join our hands and stand together,
Join our hands and stand together,
Join our hands and stand together,
Come in peace today.

There is joy in harmony,
There is joy in harmony,
There is joy in harmony,
Come in peace today.

Link our arms and sing together,
Link our arms and sing together,
Link our arms and sing together,
Come in peace today.

Repeat 1st verse, and repeat the last line as a coda.
