We Are The World 25 for Haiti

We Are The World 25 For Haiti” (a new version of We Are The World in 1985 written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and co-produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian) was recorded on February 1st, 2010 to benefit the Haitian earthquake relief efforts and the rebuilding of Haiti.

Although it was written over 25 years ago, this song still touches my heart like no other.  There is something about “unity” that moves people and seeing all the artists from all  ages and backgrounds get together and sing this song for one purpose is quite poignant.  You can’t help but imagine the possibility of all the wonderful things that can be achieved in this world when people are united as one….

We Are The World

There comes a time when we hear a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
and its time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can’t go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We are all a part of Gods great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

Send them your heart so they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
So we all must lend a helping hand

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
its true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

When you’re down and out, and there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there’s no way we can fall
Oh no,no,no,no Let us realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving out own lives
its true we’ll make a brighter day
Just you and me
