My Happy Heart Sings

‘Tis not for me to judge the performances of my life Or grade my talents, or, speak of some bold endeavors, Folks who watched me do what I felt needed to be done May, perhaps, speak of things I could never measure, There were, to be sure, grand achievements I thought Worthy of note, a child guided along the way in school, Occasional opportunities to support the worthy cause From pulpit emphasizing adherence to the Golden Rule, From time to time I wrote something worth mentioning Played instruments, lead choruses, music performance, Growing a choir of Singin' Seniors was an accomplishment Trying to make a difference, sometimes a consequence, I’m personally proudest of always standing up for a right, For believing in, and standing up for, fair-play in all things When I think about those small victories for civility won A medal for social justice, then my happy heart truly sings.
