Hearts and Hands

May the love of these two hearts joined together
Grow deeper, grow deeper
May the joy of these two hands held together
Grow stronger, grow stronger

1st refrain
Oh, Love, oh, Joy! You are here among us! Oh, Love, oh, Joy!
You dance within the two hearts here to join hands

May the love of each heart, each heart gathered here
Grow deeper, grow deeper
May the joy of the many, many hands held together here
Grow stronger, grow stronger

Sing 1st refrain followed by tag:
And circled round are many hearts / And circled round are many hands

May the tears and laughter of these two hearts
Like spring rain, bring flowers
And through pain and sorrow may these two hands
Plant hope and faith together, plant deeply

2nd refrain
Oh, Laughter, Oh, Tears! You are here among us
Oh, Laughter, oh, Tears! You dance within the two hearts here to join hands

May the tears and laughter of each heart gathered here
Like spring rain, bring flowers
And through pain and sorrow, may these many hands
Plant hope and faith together, plant deeply

Final refrain
Oh, Laughter, Oh, Tears! You are here among us
Oh, Love, Oh, Joy! You dance within the two hearts here to join hands
And circled round are many hearts / And circled round are many hands / Hearts and hands
