The Web Poetry Corner - Philip Claude Andermann - Ode To Joy

Ode To Joy

by

Philip Claude Andermann

Chorale (sung)

We now pledge a new beginning
with a song that no-one's heard.

It is of the echo mountains
in you that's a symphony.

We are one, a mountain wa-ve
lifeting you - humanity.
We're a sun that's roaring yellow,
pouncing from the Eagle Peak.

Through our children's sparkling eyes
B'hold the Century of Life.

We're arms for peace that hug the Earth,
our shields are mirrors evil flee.

Raise the fortress for the free,
off'ring gold bricks of our hearts.

Build our UN of the hearty:
ark of words and deeds - save Earth!
. . .
Our great vessel of the godhead
welcomes all to cross a sea.

Vast ocean - our next century:
huge road to true diversity.

Your pounding heart - my great ocean:
All for one and one for all.

Your last priceless ounce of courage -
lit, lights all your universe.
. . .
Be mentors who with compass clear
lead children of next century

who will lead humanity
to human "(r)evolution," all.

In this country all roots touch:
for children, now embrace as one!

Be forests great, to offer life
to build our children's vessel great.
. . .
Friends, we'd swallow all the wo-rld,
distant stars, the darkest corners,

happiest smile, the unseen tear:
to find those who courage need.

(slow)
Let all pledge a new beginning
with a song that no-one's heard.

(slower)
It is of the echo mountains
in you that's a symphony.
