									Don Bosco Songs
Celebrate – Fr Stephen Schenck sdb
Celebrate the young, he taught to fly
Children of the earth, they touch the sky
Celebrate the God that they learned to love
As they talked with him, as they walked with him.
Celebrate the man who gave them wings
And the joy that faithful living brings
Celebrate the dream that they dared to dream
Dreams they heard from him, in a word with him.

We don’t want to walk! We want to fly!
Reaching with Don Bosco for the sky
We will take the torch, we will pass it on
We will let the dream live on and on.
Celebrate his work across the earth
Teaching every girl and boy their worth
Celebrate his stand and his firm demand
To respect the young, to protect the young.

Celebrate the family that has grown
Like a tree from seed, his hand has sown
Celebrate his heart! It’s the finest part
Of the rest of us, it’s the best of us.
We don’t want to walk! We want to fly!
Reaching with Don Bosco for the sky
We will take the torch, we will pass it on
We will let the dream live on and on.

It’s a gift that God has given us and given to the world
With a burden, though, for all who have received
We will do just as he would do
If we believe, as he believed.
Celebrate the man whose one desire
Was to love the young and light a fire
Celebrate the flame, let it burn the same
In our hearts today, each and every day.

We don’t want to walk! We want to fly!
Reaching with Don Bosco for the sky
We will take the torch, we will pass it on
We will let the dream live on and on.
We don’t want to walk! We want to fly!
Reaching with Don Bosco for the sky
We will take the torch, we will pass it on
We will let the dream live on and on.
Friend of the Young and the Poor - Fr Stephen Schenck sdb

1. You were the light in the dark for the young who could not see.
And you were a spark for the young to become all they could be.
Help us all come to be all God calls us to be.
Refrain:

        We will send the message. We will be the witnesses that
        you, Don Bosco, are the friend of the young and the poor.
        Lead us safely through the storm to the heavenly shore.

2. You felt the fire in the heart of the Lord who burns with love.
And you touched the heart of the young with that fire from above.
Touch our hearts with that fire, make our God our desire.
Refrain

3. You showed the young they were called to the service of their Lord.
You taught them to walk in the light and the power of His Word.
Help us walk in that light, make His Word our delight.
Refrain



A Dream Come True -                    Rochelle Lamb FMA

Not with blows but with loving-kindness
You will win their hearts
I will give you a teacher, a guide for your life
Make yourself humble, steadfast and strong
And all that you dream will come alive
For the young, forever, for all time
A dream come true.

1 We are the keepers of this dream
The dream lives on in you and me
We can change the world through the power of love
Embrace the dream and spread the word
Let’s make a start, the future’s ours
If we but keep this dream alive. Refrain.

2 We are called to serve, we are called to shine
With Mary, our mother, as guide
Come join us now and enter the dream
Let our voices ring across the land
Live the dream, Don Bosco’s dream alive in me and you
A dream come true. Refrain.
