Dont go down with your mouth dumb,
With your own story untold.
Dont give up nor put your horn down
Till youve made your hearts content resound.
May God bless your song with dreams come true,
May your inspiration renew.
Dont go down, dont give up
Till youve seen the whole thing through,
Till youve done what you came to do.
Shine your light
to your long home
Till the end makes its inroad.
The songs you
sing may make your voice ring
When your breath is mingled with the dust.
May the ceaseless fountain spring for you,
May your weary soul be refreshed.
Tree of life, bread and wine,
Feed you now and ever more,
Fill your heart with generous store.
Seeking the way to life in
Hopefulness, while the day fades.
You will find joy in a barren place.
May love kindle your strength for kind, brave deeds,
May your liberation ensue.
Shine your light, place it high,
So the needy know your door,
So the stumblers step more sure.
