I sing the will to love:

the will that carves the will to live,

the will that saps the will to hurt,

the will that kills the will to die;

the will that made and keeps you warm,

the will that points your eyes ahead,

the will that makes you give, not get,

a give and get that tell us what you are:

how much a god, how much a human.

I call on you to live the will to love.
