The future is always on my mind and my mind on my future
So what can I do to make my future brighter?
A brighter future would make my heart lighter
A lighter heart would make for a healthier future
A healthier future would make for longer life
Life lived well could give way to a more lasting legacy
A legacy for generations to come, endlessly
So what legacy can I create today that will avoid future strife?
Strife overcome by eternal faith, hope and love
These three things eternally remain
Constantly sent down from above
That we would not just stay the same
So that these things three would become our tutor
The tutor of our future.
