Deep within our hearts dwells

the song of our destiny

The earth now moans a dirge,

she cannot play her symphony

Creation cannot sing as one
Cm7                        Fm7 Ab/Bb
for man has lost his melody

   Abm7                 B/C#
A hungry child, a dying sea
 GbM7                          BM7
A naked forest, tribal enmity
Abm7                        B/C#
All foretold man has lost his memory

The song of his destiny

The whole world needs to sing and

dance the song of all creation

As God's one family
F#/E                         Ab/Eb
All people, earth and sky

The song of all people's       salvation

Earth's a fading glory and 
Esus4                 Am
man's become her enemy
Am/G     FM7              Em7   Am7
We haven't learned to live in peace

with ocean, wind and trees

     EbM7                   AbM7    Gsus4                      Bbm/C Cm/Eb
The Lord, our God Almighty hears the song of our misery
AbM7                Gm7   Cm7                 Fm7  Eb/G Fm/D Gsus4
All His creatures great and small for delivery they call

The song of our ancestry lies deep in our memory
Fm7         Ab/Bb      Gm7            Cm7          Fm7    Ab/Bb
We still can sing along with all the earth her fading song

Abm7                    B/C#
With mother river and father hill
GbM7                          BM7
With brother eagle, sister daffodil
AbM7                    B/C#
To sing as one as on the day the world began
Ab/Bb      BM9                   Ab/Bb
When Yahweh sang with man 
(Repeat Refrain)

Listen to the strains
In your heart remains
The song of creation
The song of our salvation
(Repeat Refrain)
