THERE  HAS  TO  BE  A  SONG

There has to be a song

There are too many dark nights,

too many troublesome days,

too many wearisome miles.

There has to be a song

To make our burdens bearable,

To make our hopes believable,

To transform our successes into praise.

To release the chains of past defeats.

Somewhere - down deep in a forgotten corner of each man's heart --

There has to be a song - -

Like a cool, clear drink of water,

Like the gentle warmth of sunshine,

Like the tender love of a child,

There has to be a song.

By Robert Benson
