Event Song

The title of the event song is Weave. Listen to the tune and see preferred lyrics below.

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Weave, weave, weave us together,
Weave us together in unity and love.
Weave, weave, weave us together,
Weave us together, together in love.

We are many textures, we are many colours,
Each one different from the other.
But we are all woven together in one great tapestry.

Chorus

Nous sommes beaucoup d’étoiles, nous sommes les lumières,
Brillants de différentes manières,
Mais nous sommes une belle constellation, dans une grande galaxie.

Chorus

We are different instruments playing our own melodies,
Each one tuning to a different key
But we are all playing in harmony in one great symphony.

Chorus
