My song of truth

Meadow-grass and other things that last

replace the hissing lawns that hedge away my past

Growing trees, farmers on their knees, afresh with prayer

bring new melodies- grow it in me, build it in me

a new house of worship in my veins

let it flow out of me this day.

 

And this is my song for you

this is your song of truth

Moment of truth

our song to you

and this is my song to you

this is your song of truth

this is our moment of truth

this is our song.

 

Lives planted and nourished and guided

nourished still- your perfect will in me

minds granted wisdom’s call

spreading out to the land to all

Harvest fall

 

And this is my song for you

this is your song of truth

Moment of truth

our song to you

and this is my song to you

this is your song of truth

this is our moment of truth

this is our song.

 

Flowers planted against the wailing wall

reminds us all of the battle worth fighting for our children’s lives

Pictures are painted in backdrops of faces of one and all

the ones who were taken too soon and the ones who survived.

and you were the one who gave your life

 

In the meadowgrass the time won’t last

a dancing child barefoot and twirling in the past

the growing trees, grow taller with prayers of the farmers on their knees

the fresh poetry that you grew in me

won’t you build it in me- this new house of worship that flows out of my veins.

 

And this is my song for you

this is your song of truth

Moment of truth

our song to you

and this is my song to you

this is your song of truth

this is our moment of truth

this is our song.
