PLEASE SHARE WIDELY!!!

After publishing a “We Will Rise Together” video about the Together We Rise Berkeley event of 11/18/2016, I got feedback from several people that the chorus was so universal, they’d love to hear a new version as well. I was able to get the inspiration for that after the Women’s March of 1/21/17, So here it is, hope you like it! If you look for the last one, it’s now called “We Will Rise Together: Berkeley”.

WE WILL RISE TOGETHER (Hali Hammer)
We will rise together, we’ll be wise together
We will watch the winter turn into the spring together
We’ll hold hands together, we will band together
We’ll breathe in and out as one and we will rise, rise, rise
Our hearts will pound as one and we will rise, rise, rise

Millions rose upon their feet as they marched into the street
To stir their souls and make their voices heard
In our cities large and small, young and old answer the call
To show the world the best side of America.
(CHORUS)

We must not yield to fear, we must keep our message clear
We must rise above the darkness to where our love lights beam
– We must protect the rights of all within our sight
Remember most of us are here because an immigrant had a dream
(CHORUS)

Now all across the country, folks are talking to each other
As we share the need for caring so that we can carry on
We never will give in, so collectively we’ll win
For the darkest night becomes the new light of a breaking dawn

We will rise together, we’ll be wise together
We will watch the winter turn into the spring together
We’ll hold hands together, we will band together
We’ll breathe in and out as one and we will rise, rise, rise
Our hearts will pound as one and we will rise, rise, rise

And here’s the song “I Refuse To Believe”:

I REFUSE TO BELIEVE (Hali Hammer)

I refuse to believe that the light which we share is dimming

I refuse to believe that the good which we do will fail
I refuse to believe that the righteous will be defeated
Or our vitality be depleted – I refuse to believe
I refuse to believe that our strides are inconsequential
I refuse to believe that our energies will be drained
I refuse to believe even in our bleakest moment
That our force is less than potent – I refuse to believe
For I believe we are connected to a universal power
That cannot be held back for very long
And even though the forces of darkness are all around us
We will prevail if we don’t curtail our song
I refuse to believe that the light which we share is dimming
I refuse to believe that the good which we do will fail
I refuse to believe that the righteous will be defeated
Or our vitality be depleted – I refuse to believe (Instrumental)
‘Cause I believe that we are rising with others who are surmising
That caring and compassion are the key
And we are large in numbers
And we are strong in spirit
And we will not betray our humanity
I refuse to believe that our strides are inconsequential
I refuse to believe that our energies will be drained
I refuse to believe even in our bleakest moment
That our force is less than potent – I refuse to believe

I refuse to believe, I refuse to believe – I refuse to believe
