The Brotherhood of Man
No man must let his brother feel
The sting, injustice brings
But rather help him walk in pride
And soar on freedoms wings.
For each man is diminished not
When he shall help another
And understand and comfort him
And call a man his brother
No man must let another weep
Or see his chance denied.
For each man must walk the path of hope
And dream the dream, untried.
No man must let the truth be stilled,
Stand mute when he should speak.
Or set the truth in shadows dark
For just a few to seek.
No man must have to live in fear,
Or bondage from the past
But strive to reach the highest goal
And build a love to last.
And each man must take another’s dream
And call that dream his own,
And share the things his brother feels
To set the cornerstone.
