Give me your hand and we’ll go places
To places we haven’t been
To be strong, I need for lifelong
All these places, where do we begin?

Give me your strength so I can cope
Challenges coming to me
I need for lifelong, to be strong
I’ll do things as long as I am free

Give me your word I know I belong
With you, life is wonderful
To be strong, I need for lifelong
The power within I’ll be able
