I hear jazz for peace coming through the trees,

And in my heart it fills me like a celebration.

I see the light and I want to follow,

Inspired by the past contributions of

Those that came before and laid the groundwork

For us to build on in this universal language

That is a gift for all mankind.

And when we speak it,

People are enlightened by the creativity and artistry

That stands for peace and love and humanity

And intelligence that leads to reaching potential

That we have in our soul.

So we can raise our total conscience and

See that the gift of giving is our greatest privilege.
