LISTEN.
LOOK.

Vs 1 The people will perish without a vision strong

And the victims of oppression call to us to sing their song

We can sing it together if we’re standing side by side

Sharing joys and sorrows like the flowing of the tide

The people will perish without a vision strong

 

Vs 2 The people will perish without a vision strong

And the plunder of the earth cannot go on for very long

Development means more than building towers to the sky

And living well means more than just deciding what to buy

The people will perish without a vision strong

 

Vs 3 The people will perish without a vision strong

So when women take the lead, you know, the men must tag along

Cause women want equality and power in their own lives

And men must stop and listen if the earth is to survive

The people will perish without a vision strong

 

Vs 4 The people will perish without a vision strong

Work to build up what is right and tear down what is wrong

The young must see their visions and the old must dream their dreams

Of a time when justice rolls down as an ever-flowing stream

The people will perish without a vision strong

The people will perish without a vision strong
