From once we came,
a mighty thing!
So small to start,
from so greater a heart!
At first we earn,
and yearn,
then we learn!
There’s more than this!
at first we catch a bit,
then we think that’s it!
Yet we can’t take!
Let not make that mistake,
we have to give,
to live!
For this isn’t ours,
to plunder forever!
For it is the thunder,
the weather,
and the sea put together!
So now you feel,
a little of the little,
because it does not ask,
it gives!
When we are gone,
It will still be here ever on!
Till the next lot come along,
and take this song further on.
