Lyrics

We come here

To try what we never try

Outside

 

We come here

To do what we fear to do

Outside

 

Sing loudly

Breathe deeply

Give freely

Dance and shout

 

Speak honestly

Hear patiently

Love openly

Trust and doubt.

 

We come here to

Laugh with each other’s joy inside

To ache with each other’s pain inside

To treasure each other’s lives inside

To see with each other’s eyes inside

 

And this day

We’ll try what we’ve never tried

Do what we’ve feared to do

Be who we long to be

Outside

 

Because

We come here
