Commissioned by the Miami Children’s Chorus
Translation of Haitian Creole text:
Here We Are
Here we are, here we are,
We are children… yes, we are!
We are the children of the world.
We are hope… We come to put joy in all hearts.
Oh yes, we are love, we are joy,
We come to put joy in all hearts.
We want love to spread everywhere,
We’ve come to change the world…
Yes truly, we need to change the world!
Oh, here we are,
We are children of the world,
We are the seeds of life.
We are the children of today,
We are the adults of tomorrow.
Oh yes, we are today’s youth,
The new generation
Born to shine in a new day;
A generation of love, hope and joy
That will shine everywhere…
Love and joy in all hearts! …
