Song of Creation

Manoling Francisco

Deep within our hearts dwells the song of our destiny
Sung upon the world's completion when God laughed heartily

Draw into your heart and drink the song of creation
Unity and beauty, all that Yahweh meant to be

The earth now moans a dirge, she cannot play her symphony
Creation cannot sing as one for man has lost his melody

A hungry child, a dying sea
A naked forest, tribal enmity
All foretold man has lost his memory
The song of his destiny

REFRAIN:
The whole world needs To sing and dance the song of all creation
As God's one family
All people, earth and sky
This is our chance to sing the song of creation
The song of all people's salvation

Earth's a fading glory and man's become her enemy
We haven't learned to live in peace with ocean, wind and trees

The Lord, our God Almighty hears the song of our misery
All His creatures great and small for delivery they call

The song of our ancestry lies deep in our memory
We still can sing along with all the earth her fading song

With mother river and father hill
With brother eagle, sister daffodil
To sing as one as on the day the world began
When Yahweh sang with man

BRIDGE:
Listen to the strains
In your heart remains
The song of creation
The song of our salvation.

To sing and dance the song of all creation.
The song of all people's salvation.
As God's one family,
All people, earth and sky.
This is our chance to sing the song of creation.
The song of all people's salvation.

Finale:
To sing the song of all creation, salvation.
