A song by Frank O’Hagan sung by children from Glasgow primary schools to mark Commonwealth Games.

In the city of St. Mungo in two thousand and fourteen
There’s a triumph of the spirit
That the world has seldom seen
The courage that inspires us while endless ages run
The commonwealth for the common good
Is the dream of everyone

The Dear Green place is waiting
For all the world to see
That from tireless dedication
Dreams become reality
This is the stuff of legend
Told to daughters and to sons
The commonwealth for the common good
Is the hope of everyone.

In a world that looks for heroes
There are many here to find
With a true determination
Soul and body now combined
And through these aspirations
So much good will now be done
The commonwealth for the common good
Is the hope of everyone.

So let us raise our voices
And cheer dear Glasgow town
Its name will live in history
Throughout the world renowned
And with complete integrity
The great work has begun
The commonwealth for the common good
Is the hope of everyone.

Performed by the pupils of Anette Street, St Brides, Holy Cross and Cuthbertson Primary Schools.

Produced by Frank O’Hagan and engineered by Matt Harvey.
