This Is The Year

There are two versions of this song. The first is the version that appears on the Millennium Chorus recording. The second is an adapted congregational version.

Millennium Chorus version

This is the year when hearts go free
And broken lives are mended
I hear the sound of Jubilee
The song of sorrow ended
Love is the greatest story
The world has known
The beacon in the darkness
The way back home

Can you feel what I'm feeling?
Can you hear what I hear?
There's a new day dawning
A new sound in the air
We've been waiting For the healing
And surely the time is here

This is the year of joy for tears
And beauty out of ashes
When skies will clear if we will share
Forgive and learn what love is
Let's crown the year with kindness
And live in peace
Fill all the world with songs
That never cease

This is the year when hearts go free
And broken lives are mended
I hear the sound of Jubilee
The song of sorrow ended
This is the year, this is the year
This is, this is the year

Congregational version

This is the year when hearts go free
And broken lives are mended
I hear the sound of Jubilee
The song of sorrow ended
Love is the greatest story
The world has known
The beacon in the darkness
The way back home

This is the year of joy for tears
And beauty out of ashes
When skies will clear if we will share
Forgive and learn what love is
Let's crown the year with kindness
And live in peace
Fill all the world with songs
That never cease

These are the days of heaven's grace
And favour smiling on us
Two thousand years of hopes and prayers
Are met in one great chorus
A Light has dawned upon us
And will increase
And countless captive souls
Shall be released

Repeat Verse 1

This is the year
