A Hymn to the UN
Music: Pablo Casals Words: W.H. Auden

Eagerly, musician.
Sweep your string,
So we may sing.
Elated, optative,
Our several voices
Interblending,
Playfully contending,
Not interfering
But co-inhering,
For all within
The cincture
of the sound,
Is holy ground
Where all are brothers,
None faceless Others,

Let mortals beware
Of words, for
With words we lie,
Can say peace
When we mean war,
Foul thought speak- fair
And promise falsely,
But song is true:
Let music for peace
Be the paradigm,
For peace means to change
At the right time,
as the World-Clock
Goes Tick- and Tock.

So may the story
Of our human city
Presently move
Like music, when
Begotten notes
New notes beget
Making the flowing
Of time a growing
Till what it could be,

At last it is,
Where even sadness
Is a form of gladness,
Where fate is freedom,
Grace and Surprise.

There is nothing in this world
That can satisfy my SOUL like You do

Then through the shadows
You're LIGHT appears
I've known You're with me
But now it is CLEAR
I can FEEL You
JESUS, all around

Like sun on my skin
Warm to the TOUCH
Here You surround me
I am held by LOVE
I can feel You
JESUS, all around

Though the storm it rages
I won't be moved
I won't be shaken
I'm anchored in You
I can feel You Jesus
all around
You are my HOPE
I'm anchored in YOU
