Hand in hand, we've come together
A common goal, we surely share.
To reach out to the children
And let them know we care.
We celebrate words in print from the heart
For talented writers meet today,
To share their books and knowledge
They've learned along the way.
Hand in hand, we try to help
Giving all we can to St. Jude, but more...
We stand united, with hopes and dreams
That a cure will come knocking at the door.
We celebrate literacy starting with the little ones
To the old who love to read.
Showing how it expands your mind
And teaches you...indeed.
Hand in hand, today we see
How lucky we really are,
As we pray for those families whose kids are ill.
Let's all wish upon a star.
That one day they'll find a cure
For the little ones out there.
Make them better, give them hope
Still letting them know we care.
Hand in hand, we celebrate
As thanks is not enough to say
Keep reading, keep giving, keep a loving heart
And remember...remember this day.
As we all walk "Hand in Hand"
