I Sing

I sing ’cause I’m alive to sing,
And song is life in me-e-ee.
I sing the joy of everything
That’s strong and proud and free-eee!.

Towers rising in the open sky-y,
Someone looking from below.
He will all the stars defy-y-y;
He’s a man who knows where to go!

Someone climbing up the highest mountain,
Eagles soaring into space;
Lovers searching for the youthful fountain
And finding it face to face.

The work and strain and toil of every day;
To plan, to build, to sell, and make it pay!
Then turn around and do it all again
For love of piling gain on gain on gain!

I sing ’cause I’m alive to sing,
And song is life in me.
I sing the joy of everything
That’s strong and proud and free!
