Go placidly out into this world
Abandon all the noise and haste
It’s all the simplest of treasures
Life’s a gift you don’t want to waste
It’s the first breath of life
The warmth of your lover’s eyes
This is Desderata

It’s strength, it’s love
It’s passion
It’s faith, it’s hope
It’s compassion
When you search to find it you learn
It’s already there
It’s hope, it’s love
Fly on the wings of a dove
Desderata is there

Life in itself is a miracle
You will find the joy it brings
There is no greater thing than love
When you’re flying with its wings
It’s a place deep inside
It’s the heart of a child
You’ll see, it’s Desderata

It’s strength, it’s love
It’s passion
It’s faith, it’s hope
It’s compassion
When you search to find it you learn
It’s already there
It’s hope, it’s love
Fly on the wings of a dove
Desderata is there

Desderata…
(Desderata)
It’s everywhere (everywhere)
Just search your soul
(search your soul to find)
You’ll find
All the things that make us
(All the things that we believe)
Believe in Desderata

It’s strength, it’s love
It’s passion
It’s faith, it’s hope
It’s compassion
When you search to find it you learn
It’s already there
It’s hope, it’s love
Fly on the wings of a dove
Desderata is there

It’s strength, it’s love
It’s passion
It’s faith, it’s hope
It’s compassion
When you search to find it you learn
It’s already there
It’s hope, it’s love
Fly on the wings of a dove
Desderata is there

It’s hope, it’s love
Fly on the wings of a dove
It’s the light from above
Desderata is here…
