|Let there be one race - the human race,
And let the whole Earth be one common space.
Let all who live together in this place
Pursue in peace their chosen path to grace.
Let every culture celebrate its past
So that its precious way of life might last,
And that its legacy across the vast
Dark future fields like hand-sown seeds be cast.
Let truth be woven like a tapestry,
And let each slender thread well rendered be
By those whose passionate hearts and minds are free
To look and then make sense of what they see.
