Something New

Jim Adams hosts a weekly song lyric challenge on his blog, A Unique Title For Me. It’s called “Song Lyric Sunday” and the prompt for today is: Harmony/Melody/Music.

I’ve never responded to Jim’s challenge before but that prompt… well, it struck a chord!

My contribution is “Sing To The World,” an original song that I posted about here on sixstrstories in December, 2013.

I wrote the song – more of a hymn, actually – back in 1996 with inspiration from a variety of sources including Rev. David Slater, Lech Walesa, Sir Isaac Watts and Woody Guthrie.

I hope you enjoy it.

Here’s the link to Jim’s blog: Song Lyric Sunday.

Sing To The World

Words, Music, Guitar & Vocals by Eric Sinclair

Sing to the world a new song, sing with a joyful heart
Sing to the world a song that welcomes all with open arms
Sing to the world with countless voices joined in harmony
Sing to the world a new song that all the world can sing.

Sing to the world far and wide, sing with sparkling eyes
Sing to the world a song that keeps the flame of hope alive
Sing to the world that we may find a path to common ground
Sing to the world a song that calls us all to gather ‘round.

Sing to the world hand in hand, sing with love revealed
Sing to the world a song that knows how songs should make us feel
Sing to the world a song that shares its smile with ev’ry face
Sing to the world a song that holds the world in a warm embrace.

Sing to the world loud and long, sing with sounding joy
Sing to the world a song that fills the air with wond’rous noise
Sing to the world a song of peace to ring through ev’ry land
Sing to the world a song for ev’ry woman, child and man.
