Song Lyric Sunday: We Are the World

When I read the theme this week, several protest songs came to mind (which I’ll also add to this post) but I actually felt like focusing on ‘We are the World’… In order to get through this crazy life we really need to get together as one. We, the citizens need to take charge in whatever capacity we can, be it positive social media interaction or simply finding means to tell the other, we care. Our voices of love need to drown out the ones of hate.


There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
And it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can’t go on pretending day by day
That someone, somehow will soon make a change
We are all a part of God’s great big family
And the truth, you know
Love is all we need

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

Send them your heart so they’ll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
So we all must lend a helping hand

When you’re down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there’s no way we can fall
Let us realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one
[Chorus: x2]

  1. Wow, if you can listen to (and watch) a We Are the World video without goosebumps and a lump in your throat, you are either too young to recognize any of the singers, or there’s just something missing in your life….Thanks for reminding me of this song. It is perfect for fighting the depression and apathy than can worm its way into your heart in today’s world!

      You’re absolutely spot on! Such videos/songs simply have to transcend generations! Much needed words when surrounded by such apathy!… Thank you so much for your comment! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thanks for reminding me of We Are the World โ€” itโ€™s not just a big production number โ€” itโ€™s about each individualโ€™s responsibility.

  3. I totally forgot about We Are The World too. It made me cry listening to it. It’s so beautiful to hear voices coming together to sing of love and finding a way to make peace in the world. Thank you so much for sharing this! I enjoyed the other songs as well. ๐Ÿ™‚
