I do

This hour is the very one I had seen from afar
Then it was too far to touch
And too silly to imagine
But the hour cometh and I can also do
Do the things I dreamed of
And cover the tracks of my forbearers

To those who smile with me I praise thee
And to those who fought by me
With spear and arrow
Through the nights that seemed endless
I will engrave your titles in my heart
And keep the tears we shed in the days the went by

I lift up my eyes and see in the sky
A darkened cloud of toil and tears
But behind this cloud I the brighter galaxy
Stars of abundance and of reward
It’s a matter of time, it’s just destiny, it’s just mine
I say I do
