♪♪♪ SING ALONG ♪♪♪ as a piano plays the chords and melody (from the SOLO Edition of the Secular Hymnal). Singing along to a simple, chorded melody like this is an ideal way to develop your harmonizing skills!


Oh child do not despair
It's hard to see from there
So let us lift you way up high
So you can see the sky

And on our shoulders stand
To survey all the land
Then looking far and looking free
Please tell us what you see

May children ev'rywhere
Not ever know despair
May all find shoulders to the sky
And all be lifted high
