City of Sanctuary, City of Sanctuary

You are the sanctuary of the city

You breathe joy peace and jolly

You live welcome and honey

City of Sanctuary

You are the lily of the valley

You are the first step of an odyssey

You are the hope of these desperate people

You transform broken hearted into golden apple

City of Sanctuary

You have restored smile to the sad

You have brought good from bad

You have produced purple rain from your clouds

You have saved the disappeared from the dark clouds

Dark clouds from Africa, Asia, South America

You have been consumed by City of Sanctuary

Dark clouds from conflicts

You vanished because of City of Sanctuary

Dark clouds from selfishness, greed, injustice

You cannot resist the charity of the UK
