On this astonishing day,
Beneath the overwhelming sky,
I am not reluctant to pray
For poise as we prepare to fly
Into the unknown, come what may.
We cannot know what lies ahead
But I will not tremble in fear
Nor will I question thoughts unsaid
As the appointed time draws near
To walk into the dreams we've fed.
Extraordinary vows speak
Of spiritual unity
As we gaze into triumph's peak,
Daring to glimpse eternity,
Beyond the human flesh so weak.
Oh, I pray we stand strong and tall
For generations yet to be;
Let the world see we greet the call
To live as one in harmony,
Facing the future of it all.
