Don't Cry

Julie the Heart

Come Let Us Build a New World Together

Come hand and hand all good people

There is a job to be done

And we will work beneath the silver moon

And work beneath the burning sun


Come let us build a new world together

The time is now or the time is never

Come let us build a new world together


To each one must come shine and rain

To each

But on this earth of loss and gain

Together we can bring light to each soul


Someday we will build a new world together

And then our job will be done

Someday beneath the silver moon

Someday beneath the burning sun
