To be alive and feeling free,
And to have everyone in our family,
To be alive in every way!
Oh, how great it is to be alive!
Every day there's newness,
Something else to do.
The dawn of life is upon us,
So let the gladness ring through.

To be alive and feeling free,
And to have everyone in our family,
To be alive in every way!
Oh, how great it is to be alive!
Wake up to a new sunshine;
Darkness no longer stays.
For the new generation
Will light the world today.

To be alive and feeling free,
And to have everyone in our family,
To be alive in every way!
Oh, how great it is to be alive!
Tell the whole population,
The time has now arrived.
We must learn the sensation
That comes with being alive!

To be alive and feeling free,
And to have everyone in our family,
To be alive in every way!
Oh, how great it is to be alive!
Ring the bell of new freedom,
Teach your brother to live.
For the real joy of living
Is something we can now give!
To be alive and feeling free,
And to have everyone in our family,
To be alive in every way!
Oh, how great it is to be alive!

To be alive and feeling free,
And to have everyone in our family,
To be alive in every way!
Oh, how great it is to be alive!

I first heard this song in 1969. I always thought it was Episcopalian because that's how I came accross it. Ah, the good old days of ecumenism. Catholics, Lutherans, Episcopalians and Methodists all got together and we had intercommunion, which I later learned we weren't suppossed to do. Happy carefree days.

One Song for which I never forgot the melody or lyrics!
But as I child I thought it a sad song - cuz my big brother was lost in a car accident.... So we didn't "have everyone in our family".
But I still sing it and have since come to the knowledge that those who go before us remain in our family and we'll all join together on the other side someday.
So looking forward to seeing that brother of mine!
