This simple verse encourages taking responsibility for our own actions and making amends when we're wrong.
Parts 1 & 2: Say you're sorry if you hurt a friend,
With your words or something you have done.
Part 3: I'll say, "Sorry," when I know I'm wrong.
I'll say, "Sorry," then we'll get along.
Teach your students or audience Parts 1 & 3 and have them sing them together. It works!
Our songs for children about peace and justice, resolving conflicts, and celebrating our global family are more important than ever in these troubled times. These Peace Resources are intended to help us all move forward with hope and tools for song and action as we work together to build a healthier, more peaceful world.
