Jubilee Song

As the Beacons are lit at 9.45pm throughout the UK & Commonwealth in celebration of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a small group comprised of residents from Channels and the local community will lead in the singing of the unique Song for The Commonwealth – A Life filled with Grace, joining together with voices around the globe in celebration of this special moment in The Queen’s life.

Everyone attending the beacon lighting will be encouraged to pick up a lyric sheet and join in by singing the song and we have chosen a simpler popular music arrangement to keep things fun and accessible.

Verse 1
When the world has turned to darkness
And there’s troubled seas ahead
There’s a light that leads the ship
back home to shore
Chorus
A life lived with grace
A heart filled with love
Peace on earth and harmony
In the heavens above (x2)
Verse 2
When the day is slowly breaking
And the dawn can’t find its way
There’s a sun that shines upon the world
Heralding a brand new day
Chorus
A life lived with grace
A heart filled with love
Peace on earth and harmony
In the heavens above (x2)
Verse 3
When the night has come, a-calling
And the daylight starts to fade
There’s a reason why the world rejoices
Singing all as one today
Chorus
A life lived with grace
A heart filled with love
Peace on earth and harmony
In the heavens above (x3)
