I will hope that life will flourish.
I will dream of peace on earth.
I will dare to act for justice.
But I feel the pangs of birth.
We will trust in loving power.
We will put our faith in truth.
We will hold on to each other.
But the road is far from smooth.
Good news comes when least expected.
Friends appear from fields unknown.
Light returns when fear is lifted.
Be courageous; hold your own.
All the world waits for salvation.
All of life will find release.
All, the universe included,
will be full of joy and peace.
