'The Sound Of Singing' - Eric Bogle.

We are well met my friends, in this place tonight
Though some of us are strangers to each other
The many paths that brought us here shall mingle and unite
As we walk down this same path together
And so when the music starts open up your heart
Let it soar like a lark in early morning
Sorrow care or fear tonight have no place here
They shall all soon disappear in the sound of singing.

This modern world we live in leaves us little room for choice
Small simple dreams are often derided
But tonight we shall combine in one simple human voice
Tonight we shall be not divided
So for these few hours at least let your spirit be released
May you find peace if peace is what you're seeking
The frantic ceaseless roar of the world outside your door
Shall this night fade before the sound of singing.

And so when the music starts open up your heart
Let it soar like a lark in early morning
Sorrow care or fear tonight have no place here
They shall all soon disappear in the sound of singing.

MAGIC!! And all from memory.

Enjoy!
