Inspired by words from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

May the waves of justice (carry us forward)
And the sunrays of song (carry us on)
May the arc of history (carry us forward)
Bend towards love (carry us on)
Waves of compassion (carry us forward)
Lift us along (carry us on)
May the courage of children (carry us forward)
Be nurtured and grow (carry us on)
And the fires of our elders (carry us forward)
Guide us on the road (carry us on)
Guide us towards justice (carry us forward)
Guide us towards love (carry us on)
Guide us towards justice (carry us forward)
Guide us towards love (carry us on)
Amen (Amen)
Amen (Amen)
Amen (Amen)
Amen (Amen)
