Listen -- hear the song
Nothing can be wrong
Children sing a hymn
While the interim is slowly passing

Listen -- turn my way
How can I convey
Feelings just for you
Love will soon ensure and still surpass

World without stars, world without trees
Sky without birds, skies above seas
World without stars, hearing my pleas
I roam afar, loving with ease

Listen -- lift your eyes
Look unto the skies
Pray for love and peace
Pray that wars shall cease forevermore

Listen to my birth
Think of all its worth
Carry me to Mars
I'll do what I can to ease the sore

[Title inspired by Poul Anderson's novel]
