FOREST VOICES CHOIR

Singing ‘Line-Up’ in Forest Gate

Forest Voices Choir that Ruth Rikowski is a member of sang 3 songs for the turning on of the Christmas lights event. The lights were turned on by Robin Wales, the Mayor of Newham, on 5th December 2015. Two of the songs were Christmas Carols and the other was a lovely song advocating peace throughout the world. It is called ‘Line-Up’ (by Helen Yeomans).
Here are the words for ‘Line-Up’:

 

Line up, line up

Wo oh

For your place in the peaceable kingdom

Yeh, yeh, yeh.

 

Line up, line up

Wo oh

For your place in the peacable kingdom

Yeh, yeh, yeh.

 

Line up, line up

Wo oh

For your place in the peacable kingdom

Yeh, yeh, yeh

 

Bring your songs of freedom for a brave new world

 

Let me hear you

Sing, sing now.

 

Line up!

 

The rich and the poor

The weak and the strong

The humble and the proud

Won’t you sing out loud

The merciful of heart

The sinner and the saint

The forgiven and the wrong

Find your voice in song

No differentiation between black and white

Let the Arab man stand by the Israelite

There ain’t no creed, there ain’t no colour

But the blood that flow thru your sister and brother.

 

*Repeat lines up to ‘Line Up’.
Ruth has loaded the video of the Forest Voices Choir singing ‘Line-Up’  on to YouTube.

This is the first item that she has ever loaded anything on to YouTube! Hopefully, more will follow!
