"Rhymes And Reasons" as written by and John Denver....
So you speak to me of sadness
And the coming of the winter
Fear that is within you now
It seems to never end

And the dreams that have escaped you
And the hope that you've forgotten
You tell me that you need me now
You want to be my friend

And you wonder where we're going
Where's the rhyme and where's the reason
And it's you cannot accept
It is here we must begin
To seek the wisdom of the children
And the graceful way of flowers in the wind

[Chorus]
For the children and the flowers
Are my sisters and my brothers
Their laughter and their loveliness
Could clear a cloudy day

Like the music of the mountains
And the colours of the rainbow
They're a promise of the future
And a blessing for today
Though the cities start to crumble
And the towers fall around us
The sun is slowly fading
And it's colder than the sea

It is written from the desert
To the mountains they shall lead us
By the hand and by the heart
They will comfort you and me
In their innocence and trusting
They will teach us to be free

[Chorus]

And the song that I am singing
Is a prayer to non believers
Come and stand beside us
We can find a better way

    My InterpretationWhat I believe the song means is that he's trying to share his understanding and knowledge of God. Although at the end of the song, it says

    Come and stand beside us, we can find a better way.

    What does that mean? Can anybody tell me?
