“For the past 35 years the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus have been singing this song at all of our moments of great celebration as well as all of our moments of great sorrow,” said conductor and artistic director Ben Riggs at a Minneapolis vigil for the victims of the shootings in Orlando, Florida. “And we sing this song over and over and over again because it describes the community that we want to live in. We invite you tonight to find someone nearby and hold their hand as we sing ‘Walk Hand In Hand.’”

Walk hand in hand with me through all eternity
Have faith, believe in me, give me your hand
Love is a symphony of perfect harmony
When lovers such as we walk hand in hand

Be not afraid, for I am with you all the while
So lift your head up high and look toward the sky

Walk hand in hand with me, this is our destiny
No greater love could be, walk hand in hand
Walk with me

Be not afraid, for I am with you all the while
So lift your head up high and look up to the sky

Walk hand in hand with me, this is our destiny
No greater love could be, walk hand in hand
Walk with me
