THE TEXT

In all that we are,

It is better by far

To follow our star,

And sing out our truth.

 

When things can’t get worse,

We hunger and thirst

For the last to be first;

And so we sing out our truth.

 

We sing for the poor.

We sing for the weak.

We sing for the helpless,

The hopeless, the meek.

We sing out the truth

Against hunger and hate.

We sing out for justice

Before it’s too late!

 

And in all that we do

For these, and for you,

The whole dark night through

We’re gonna sing out our truth!

Charles Anthony Silvestri
