Women's anthem

Post by Dreamweaver » 09 Mar 2018, 21:17

Stirring Women's anthem sung by 400 Women of Victoria Australia to mark the centenary of Suffrage - finally getting the Vote in Australia after 19 attempts in Parliament.
Sung at the BMW edge in Melbourne, composed by Kavisha Mazzella (www.kavisha.com) and commissioned by the Victorian Women's Trust - for more info please visit www.vwt.org.au

Love and Justice
Lyrics and music
© Kavisha Mazzella & VWT 2008



The moon is hidden in the clouds
The fire light is dying
In the dark slum and street
Men, women, children crying
No work today means no pay
And no pay means we’re starving
Mother I’m with child again
I feel like I am dying
~
A pen, a pen your weapon be
My fine courageous women
Let’s sign our names a thousand times
For freedom that’s hard winning
No more let fear and anger rule
With heavy hand of violence
The moon is shining in the sky
As we break the silence
~
CH: Love and Justice be my flag
I’ll live my truth what e’re will be
I swear that I cannot rest
‘til there’s equality
Love and Justice be my flag
I’ll live my truth whatever comes
So many rivers to cross
‘til our journey’s done
~
All who toil the weary earth
See beyond your measure
Women are real gold
For all of us to treasure
For every heroine that’s named
There are a thousand nameless
Who live to make a better day
With acts of Love and Justice
~
CH: Love and Justice be my flag
I’ll live my truth what e’re will be
I swear that I cannot rest
‘til there’s equality
Love and Justice be my flag
I’ll live my truth whatever comes
So many rivers to cross
‘til our journey’s done
~
MID Daughter, sister, mother, wife
When you rise so shall others
Happiness will fall upon
Son, father, husband, brother
In home and in the marketplace
Town and country-side
Let our laughter spread its wealth
It’s surely our birthright
~
CH: AHH –sung instead of words
~
Oh I had the strangest dream
It came one starry midnight
Men and women all joined hands
In peace and loving friendship
All broken hearts were mended
All broken bodies healed
River, mountain, rocks rejoiced
The bells of freedom pealed!
Fanfare
Sop 1 Love! Love! Justice be my
Love! Love! Justice be my
Love! Love! Justice be my
Love! Love! Justice be my
Flag………..Ah……………
~
Sop 2 Love and Justice be my flag
Love and Justice be my flag
Flag………..Ah………………
~

~

~
I dream, therefore I am.
