Song of welcome

Author: 

This is the song of welcome sung by Red Hill children at the triumphant arrival of Johan Wiklund after his epic flight from northern Scandinavia. The words are by Lesley Beake and the song was workshopped by Blaq Pearl, with assistance from Rosemary Bangham.

We are the children of Red Hill
Children are the future!
Books can help us reach our dreams
Reading is our future!
1
Welcome little Moth
Welcome brave Johan!
You have flown so far
To show what courage can.

We are the children of Red Hill
Children are the future!
Books can help us reach our dreams
Reading is our future!

2 We have dreams as well
Dreams that might come true
We have dreams as well
If we can be brave, like you!

We are the children of Red Hill
Children are the future!
Books can help us reach our dreams
Reading is our future!

3 Thank you Swedish friends
Thank you for your help
Books can help us dream
Books can make us brave.

We are the children of Red Hill
Children are the future!
Books can help us reach our dreams
Reading is our future!
