If we could see into the past
Oh what deeds we’d discard fast
Words we wished were never spoken
Promises that we have broken.
Oh what challenge this world now shows
And watch just how our wisdom grows
With all the courage we can save
To keep us smart and safe and brave.
But we this gift not yet received
While in our lives too much deceived
We know at last it is too late
We’re not the owners of our fate !
