More about Donnalynn Grunewald:
Most of my music is original. Because I have lived in small branches for most of my life, I try to write songs that can be performed by a small group or a choir of inexperienced singers.

Lyrics: Who is my sister? Who will share with me the challenges and joys of this society? <br/>The work is there for someone. Who will hearken to the call? <br/>Together we are strong and we may comfort one and all. <br/> <br/>Chorus: And all around the world we are gathering as one: <br/>The sisterhood of Zion, and our story’s just begun. <br/>Speaking many tongues, and in a hundred different lands - <br/>The sisterhood of Zion – hand in hand. <br/> <br/>I see my sister, there on bended knee, in a humble cottage with her family. <br/>Though her roof is thatching, and though her floors are bare <br/>I know that I could step inside and feel the Spirit there. <br/> <br/>(Chorus) <br/> <br/>Another sister, speaking foreign words. Teaching in a language I have never heard. <br/>But when she comes toward me and reaches out her hand <br/>She speaks the universal tongue of love – I understand. <br/> <br/>(Chorus) <br/> <br/>Hands – reaching out across the waves, across the land. <br/>reaching out to heal, to bond, to understand. <br/> <br/>I see my sisters, as different as can be and yet, we can rejoice in our diversity. <br/>For though we are so different, our purpose is the same: <br/>To strengthen one another and to serve in Heaven’s name. <br/> <br/>(Chorus)
