Sing of the road to peace: all of humanity is walking it.
Sing of the road to joy—the stars know it.
Sing of the road to the children who stand
Immense in the beauty they have claimed for themselves,
Rich in the wisdom of a new land.
Sing, all voices raised
To bless us on our way.
And sing of the restful deep dark sleep
When this rehearsal’s over—
A time to pause, and then, in bliss,
Come home and start again.
