Music by Andrew Hill & Lyrics by Lenora Zenzalai Helm

Brother, Oh my brother
Just what can I say to you
How do I ease your way?
Or what will it change or do
Is there much to say?
If thoughts shape reality
Are you a stand for others to be
A beacon for all humanity

Brother Oh, my Sister
Is peace a reality
Can Love be all we need?
Our words have the power to
Bring the change we need
In every walk of life
Together we fall down or succeed
In every color, race or creed
My brother is free when “I am he”.
