Unitarian women

Tune: Ar Hyd y Nos (All through the Night)

For the ones who went before us,
We now give thanks.
For the legacy they left us,
We now give thanks.
In your image you created
Women to be celebrated.
For each one so dedicated,
We now give thanks.
From the shadows they’re emerging
To take their place.
Now we see them re-appearing,
Face after face.
Through the ages they have guided,
Nourished, cherished, loved and guided.
Let their hist’ry be included
And not erased.
Silent voices long forgotten,
In us live on.
Heroines of your creation –
Hear now their song.
Mothers, sisters, wives and daughters,
Guardians, carers, teachers, lovers,
Singers, painters, poets, authors –
Long live their song.
