Flower Ceremony Song Lyrics

One of the traditions of the Lake Champlain Dragon Boat Festival is our Flower Ceremony. All of the participants in our Sisters at Heart Celebration sing a special song as we join our boats, hands and hearts together on the water. 

This year we will bring our hearts and hands together in a virtual flower ceremony. We will create a montage of participants’ flower tosses set to the music of the vocal ensemble Solaris, in honor of those survivors here today and those who remain with us in our hearts.

Please join us by sending your video here.


(New lyrics and recording coming soon!)



It’s like a storm
That cut a path
It breaks your will
It feels like that

You think you’re lost,but you’re not lost
On your own, you’re not alone.

When you’ve done all you can do, and you can’t cope.
I will dry your eyes,I will fight your fight
I will hold you tight and I won’t let go.

It hurts my heart to see you cry
I know it’s dark this part of life
Oh it finds us all and we’re too small
To stop the rain,oh but when it rains
