DVD Title Song

"The dark night is ending"

Sound over all waters,
Reach out from all lands,
The chorus of voices,
The clasping of hands;
Rise, hope of the ages,
Arise like the sun,
All speech flow to music,
All hearts beat as one.

Sing bridal of nations!
With chorals of love,
Sing out the war-vulture,
And sing of the dove,

Sing a song of that great joy,
Angels recall,
Sing of glory unto God
And good-will to all!

Blow, bugles of battle,
The marches of peace;
East, west, north, and south let
the long quarrel cease;
The dark night is ending,
And dawn has begun
All speech flow to music,
All hearts beat as one!

--anti-war poem by John Greenleaf Whittier
