No man must let his brother feel
The sting injustice brings
But rather help him walk in pride
And soar on Freedom's wings.
For each man is diminished not
When he shall help another
And understand and comfort him
And call a man his brother.
No man must let another weep
Or see his chance denied.
For each must walk the path of hope
And dream the dream, untried.
No man must let the truth be stilled,
Stand mute when he should speak
Or set the truth in shadows dark
for just a few to seek
No man must have to live in fear
or bondage from the past
But strive to reach the highest goal
And build for love to last.
And each must hold another's dream
And call that dream his own
And share the things his brother feels
To set Love's cornerstone.
