Sing of love and happiness and joy,
Even as the world descends towards sorrow,
A song of hope reborn to spirits buoy,
So sweet it brings new promise to tomorrow.
Open up the windows of your heart,
Nor need you doubt the power of your song.
Sing with all your wisdom and your art,
Gathering strength as others sing along.
Render scenes from your imagination
Embodying the soul of your ideal,
Eroding the redoubt of resignation
That stands between what should be and what's real.
If all your efforts sometimes seem to be
No more than pouring wine into the sea,
Give another metaphor a chance:
Sing, that all the world around might dance.
