Sing your own song, said the river,
Sing your own song.
Out of yesterday song comes.
It goes into tomorrow,
Sing your own song.
With your life fashion beauty,
This too is the song.
Riches will pass and power. Beauty remains.
Sing your own song.
All that is worth doing, do well, said the river.
Sing your own song.
Certain and round be the measure, every line be graceful and true.
Time is the mold, time the weaver, the carver,
Time and the workman together,
Sing your own song.
Sing well, said the river, sing well.
