Freedom
Calls my name

Serenity
Keeps me sane

Happiness
It dulls the pain

Honor
To save my fate

Hoping
To run away

Willingness
To understand

Justice
For you not judge

Courtesy
For all to start

Kindness
It's not that hard

Self-restraint
The self impaired

Inventory
My daily bread

Analysis
Until you're gone

Look in the mirror
What do you see?
The shattered fortress that once built me

Faithful ascent, through darkest fires
I've found the path to take me higher

You're smart enough for me to trust
Go live your life now
Just keep these steps in your life

And you'll know how

If you're not sure, ask yourself
Have I done to them

As I would have them do to me?

Look in the mirror
What's that you see?
The shattered fortress, fly now, be free!

Faithful ascent, through darkest fires
I've found the path to take me higher

I once thought it better to be right
But now I have finally seen the light
Sometimes you've got to be wrong, and learn from mistakes
I live with serenity now, not self-righteous hate

(help me be a channel of thy peace
That were there is hatred, I may bring love)
(that were there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness)
(that were there is discord, I may bring harmony)
(that were there is error, I may bring truth)
(that were there is doubt, I may bring faith)

Now that you can see all you have done
(that were there is despair, I may bring hope. that were there is shadow, I may bring light)

It's time to take that step into the kingdom
(that were there is sadness, I may bring joy)

All your sins will help to make you strong
(that I may seek rather to comfort, than to be comforted.
That I may seek to understand rather than to be understood)

And help you break right through the prison wall
(that I may seek to love, rather than to be loved,
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds,
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven)

Keep all of me, the desires

That once burned me deep inside
Help me live today and help to give me grace
To carry out your ways

I am ready, help me be all I can be
I am ready, help guide me and keep me brave

I am responsible when anyone, anywhere
Reaches out for help, I want my hand to be there
I am responsible when anyone, anywhere
Reaches out for help, I want my hand to be there
