In "Toolbox of Faith," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the group in a circle. Introduce the song, in these words or your own:
This song is called "If I Had a Hammer." It was written by Pete Seeger, a Unitarian, with Lee Hays, when they were musicians in a group called The Weavers, in the 1950s. Many other musicians and people who gather to demonstrate against injustice continue to sing this song.
You may be able to lead the group in singing the song straight through the first time, especially if you have posted the lyrics. Once the group can sing it comfortably, encourage them to feel its power as they sing it together again.
