There are too many dark nights,
too many troublesome days,
too many wearisome miles,

There has to be a song—
To make our burdens bearable,
To make our hopes believable,
To transform our successes into praise,
To release the chains of past defeats,

Somewhere—down deep
in a forgotten corner of each man’s heart—
There has to be a song—

Like a cool, clear drink of water,
Like the gentle warmth of sunshine,
Like the tender love of a child,
There has to be a song.

by Bob Benson
