    We have already crossed the burning sands
    We have chosen the right turns at crossroads
    We have with courage taken righteous stands
    We have with strength shouldered the needed loads

    We have sown the seeds for crops bountiful
    We look upon the promised harvest great
    We call out loudly to the dutiful
    We must go forward it's no time to wait

    We must not heed the devils' plans to thwart
    We must continue with our vision clear
    We must each in our own place do our part
    We must overcome fabricated fear

    We have now sweet victory in our sight
    We have only to keep the blessed fight

    The test of faith has been reveal
    Now we must master the
    Symbols of love, if man
    Can master the slavery of man
    Why is it so hard to master
    love and unity within our own
    Back yard. The test of faith
    Is in our hands, lets take the
    knowledge and build the bridge
    The love between brothers and
    Sisters around the world shall
    Stand as one.

    Thank you my brother for such powerful words
