As the sun sets and the lights start to gleam,
The surf and the sea are enticing a dream.
The pounding of surf on the gray rocks below
Sounds like music to me, I'm beginning to know
That all is not lost or forsaken.
If the Powers can send this beauty to us,
If humans can learn to give and to trust,
If light can reach far and guide us all back,
If hope, dreams and love can keep us on track,
Then all is not lost or forsaken.
See the light gleam in the distance beyond?
Shall we answer the call of the light's siren song?
Let's follow it now to the cottage we see,
Come in from the darkness and let the light free.
For all is not lost or forsaken.
To home and to hearth, that is the dream,
Op'ning the door and viewing the scene.
Cozy and comfy, warmth and good cheer,
Relatives close and friends that are dear,
It was never all lost or forsaken.
