Better World

A new song to be released for Earth Day 2021

There’s a cold wind blowing across the world to night;
There’s a darkness descending blocking out the light,
The dream that’s dying leaves sadness in my heart,
For what man has put asunder can tear the world apart, world apart, world apart!

A better world! A better way!
A better road to take,
We journey on! The journey’s long!
A better world to make.

A sickness in the ocean, poison in the air,
There’s a better way, but we have to do our share,
To save the planet, believe me there’s still time,
Oh yes we’ll leave a better world for those we leave be-hind, leave behind, leave behind!

A better world! A better way!
A better road to take,
We journey on! The journey’s long!
A better world to make.

There’s a time to make difference with you and me;
We start caring if our planet’s to be saved,
Oh yes So our children’s children will live a better way, better way, better way!

A better world! A better way!
A better road to take,
We journey on! The journey’s long!
A better world to make.

Birds up in the heavens and fish out in the sea,
It isn’t up to someone else, just you and me!
Save the trees and bees and flowers now be-fore they’re gone,
We’ll leave a better world for ones who come a long, come a long, come a long.

A better world! A better way!
A better road to take.
We journey on! The journey’s long! No better time to make!
A better world! A better way!
A better road to take.
We journey on! The journey’s long!
A better world to make.
A better world! Together built,
And if we read the sign,
We’ll journey on!
And all belong In our our pure new world divine.

God Is Working His Purpose Out (Benson) – Organ & Trumpet Descant

A new recording of “God Is Working His Purpose Out”, a rousing hymn with words by Arthur Campbell Ainger (1841 – 1919), an English lyricist and schoolmaster at Eton College, which might explain much of its tone. It is set to the tune “Benson” by Millicent D. Kingham (1866 – 1927), a South African composer. Very piece much of its time, with its echos of militant missionaries at the peak of British Empire, but still relevant today.
