From Janis: I put this song out there hoping it would be used in all sorts of ways, and by all sorts of people. So when Brian emailed me asking if his group could use “Better Times Will Come” for their services at Forest Hill United Church, he received an enthusiastic “Yes, please send me a copy when you make the video!” Here they are from Fredericton, Canada, working with the community to spread a message of love, tolerance, and caring for one another. Welcome, all!

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
