    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
