We speak with one voice
And dance the same dance
We sing the same tune
And know each other’s glance
We are sisters, and brothers,
Fathers, and mothers
Our roots go deep
Sustained by vast pools
of common history
We share a past, a present
Yet we share no future
For, you will stay here
And, I will go there.

We have many voices
We dance different dances
And sing different tunes
Yet, have the same dream
And share a new land
We become
Sisters, and brothers,
Fathers, and mothers
We celebrate our past
We share our present
And envision a future
One that will last
For we are all here
