Let every voice that reads a word be clear
And let those words ring from the farthest hill
And echo back so once again they're near
And all our empty hearts with love they fill.
A whispered word is stronger than a shout,
The silent words of truth will win the day
At least if we don't all just mope about
And let the devil speed us to decay.
So busy be and and play your gracious part
Lift up your candle high into the night
If you have not begun then make a start
And help to guide us all towards the light.
If everyone did as much as they could,
The world would be less evil and more good.
