Softly Shout for Joy

When beauty casts its glow,

When children play in snow

I softly shout for joy!

When students get to know,

When trees, unnoticed, grow

I softly shout for joy!

 

If rich folk wish to share,

If people show they care

I softly shout for joy!

If discipline is fair;

If hope grows from despair

I softly shout for joy!

 

When nations can agree,

Or use diplomacy

I softly shout for joy!

When governments can see

That people should be free

I softly shout for joy!

 

If stubborn tyrants bend,

If different races blend,

I softly shout for joy!

If outcasts find a friend

If broken friendships mend

I softly shout for joy.

 

When God is clearly found

In everything around

I softly shout for joy!

Together we are bound

In love that’s quite profound

And so I shout for joy!
