This song begins by having choir members state something hurtful that has been said to them in an overlapping texture that shows that we have all been affected by pain and violence, and yet we choose to sing. From its opening section of cacophony to the powerful refrain, this original song will inspire your singers and your audience to rise above their hurt and the violence in our world. "We will rise from the senseless pain and violence. Fear will fail and love will win. And a new song will echo in the silence. We will sing the world whole again."
