Make A Stand (CBCP Year of the Youth Official Theme Song)

Make A Stand is the theme song of the double celebration for the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) Year of the Youth and the Episcopal Commision on Youth (ECY)'s 25th Anniversary [December 16, 2010 - December 16, 2011]

I decided to make a repost of this song so more and more people can also have a resource and share this to everyone. Kudos to all young souls!

written and produced by Jude Gitamondoc
interpreted by Daryl Leong
with backup vocals Jean Barbadillo, Eliza Barwado, Don Eguna, Johanna Lavajo, Daryl Leong, Les Paul Pineda, Edison Saynes
arranged, recorded, and mixed by Jad Bantug at 1032 Studios

***
MAKE A STAND

How long must we sit and wait for a hero?
And how long must we waste today for tomorrow?
To our people that’s lost in the dark
We can be guiding hand, shining star
If we only could see that the hero is here
In our hearts, young as we are…
We can stand and make a stand
Heart to heart and hand in hand
Let that voice out inside
That we can’t keep on hiding
Gotta work to make things work
Gotta change to change the world
‘Cause we cannot deny, we gotta give it a try
We are never too young to come as one
And to make a stand.

Stand firm, be a guiding light to the nation
Stand proud, let's unite in one celebration
With the Power of God from above
We can tell all the world of His love
Standing firm in the faith
Doing all of our work from the heart
We've got to start to make a stand
We can stand and make a stand
Heart to heart and hand in hand
Let that voice out inside
That we can’t keep on hiding
Gotta work to make things work
Gotta change to change the world
‘Cause we cannot deny, we gotta give it a try
We are never too young to come as one
And to make a stand.
For together, we’re strong
Now it won’t be for long
Till we heal this broken land
If we live what we’ve learned
Take this time to take our turn
To make a stand!
Let that voice out inside
That we can’t keep on hiding
Gotta work to make things work
Gotta change to change the world
‘Cause we cannot deny, we gotta give it a try
We are never too young to come as one
And to make a stand.
We can stand and make a stand
Heart to heart and hand in hand
Let that voice out inside
That we can’t keep on hiding
Gotta work to make things work
Gotta change to change the world
‘Cause we cannot deny, we gotta give it a try
We are never too young to come as one
We can make a stand.
