Take the boy up by the hand
Lift the weakest up to stand
Help them cross the burning land
Help them through the desert sand
Become the light that gives the fight
For those who have a dying sight
Show the way on which they might
Find a way they find is right
A little bud can grow up strong
A child can learn right from wrong
A tree can reach out far and long
It takes a touch, a gentle song
Shine bright my growing Sun
Light your path as day is done
