for Ozgecan Aslan and too many others to count




mash~up

 

 

 

Will the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky.

 

original lyrics by Ada R. Habershon

music by Charles H. Gabriel

 

 

~~~

 

 

two things that still matter

 

innocence and sincerity

 

and always will

 

 

~~~

 

 

may the circle keep on growin'

take a new form every day

there's a new way, and it's comin'

by and by, lord, soon enough

 

and it's here, babes, yes it's here now

it's right before you

it's right before me

it's right here on this page

 

it's a new world

and it's here, babes, it is here, here and now

and it's time, boys, 

and it's time, girls, to sing together

 

sing together, not tomorrow

sing together, here and now

I've come back to read this text several times, to try to pinpoint why I like it so much, until I realized it is the

innocence and sincerity

It is really good to be unabashedly hopeful and optimistic once in a while. Much more helpful than tired old cynisism.
