Oh, had I a golden thread
And a needle so fine
I'd weave a magic strand
Of rainbow design
Of rainbow design

In it I'd weave the courage
Of women giving birth
In it I'd weave the innocence
Of the children over all the earth
Children of all the earth

Far over the water,
I'd stretch my magic band
To every city,
To every single land
To every land

Show my brothers and my sisters
My rainbow design
Bind up this sorry world
With hand and heart and mind
Hand and heart and mind

Oh, had I a golden thread
And a needle so fine
I'd weave a magic strand
Of rainbow design
Of rainbow design
