Oh, but life is full of joy
yet others seldom say;
though frightful storms besiege us all,
great joy may light the way.
Despite wild tempests threatening
to burden one and all;
the flowers of the universe
still bloom in rains that fall.
Though delicate and beautiful,
within them courage lies;
upholding every ounce of strength
to brave the roughest tides.
On every day, come rain or shine,
Your soul must battle on;
bring courage to the storms of life
and sing your bravest song.
