Song for today

As I am observing the world-wide reaction to the presidential elections in the U.S. and Baha’i Perspectives‘ timely reminder of the inspired source of all the changes we observe in the world today, I think that the “Anthem for the World” by Matthew Levine is a wonderful soundtrack for today:

Around the world as we assemble in every mosque and church and temple,
we intone our dedication to become one congregation.
Now the sun of truth has risen. We will break out of our prison
God of mercy! God of thunder! Help is tear the wall assunder.
No more living in a house divided, lost in the dead of the night.
As one people we will stand united, holding onto the light.

One by one these chains are broken as the word of love is spoken.
From our slumber we awaken with a faith that can’t be shaken.
For in our hearts there builds a fire. In our soul chants heaven’s choir.
Here’s our moment, now or never. One for all and all together.
No more living in a house divided, lost in the dead of the night.
As one people we will stand united, holding onto the light.

The heavens will hail when the day is done.
And love will prevail if it takes a million broken hearts to beat as one, as one.
No more living in a house divided, lost in the dead of the night.
As one people we will stand united, holding onto the light, the light.
