We Are The People

By Sue Kirkpatrick
Performed by Two Bays Choir.


Lyrics


We are the people, we are the ones.
We hold the future, the future’s just begun now.
We are the people, we are the ones.
We hold the future, the future’s just begun now.

Listen to the earth, listen to the sky.
Listen to the wisdom of the ones before us.
Listen to the earth, listen to the sky.
Listen to the wisdom of the ones before us.

Notes


This song evokes the future beings and the wisdom of the ancient ones, sending us present-day beings forth, together in community. Composer Sue Kirkpatrick says: “I use it a lot when I work with children. Sounds good with a strong drumbeat in the background.”

Each stanza expands into three part harmony, layering one on the other, and then both stanzas are sung at the same time, producing a delicious rhythmic effect.
