All:        If I could say one word,

     I would say Amen


Leader:  So be it sun and stars

All:        Amen


Leader:  Truly flowers, trees

      And food and fun

All:         Amen


Leader:  Yes to this and Yes to that!

      And all who teach that we are one

All:        Amen, Amen, Amen


Leader:  If I could say one word

      I would say Amen


All:        So be it tests, accomplishments

     And things that went all wrong

Leader:  Amen

     And those who love to be alone

Leader:  Amen


All:        Yes to easy happiness
