Music seeks us, lifts the spirit,

Melody that soothes the soul

Makes all the world have merit

May we all its virtues extol


Unite us all in the glory of sounds

Undulating waves that raise up emotions

Upbeat or sorrowful they heal our wounds

Uprooting hidden whispers, silent devotions


Notes so crystal clear a-calling

Naught else can soothe the savage caught

Nerves twanging like a guitar string

New processes and hardwiring is wrought


Only this echoing around our being

Opens hearts, each word draws us closer

Obeying the dictates of the muse speaking

Obliging the needs of the composer
