  • 6. All for the Best

    4th, 6th, and 8th: When you feel sad, or under a curse,

    Your life is bad, your prospects are worse. Your wife is sighing, crying, and your olive tree is dying,

    Temples are greying, and teeth are decaying, And creditors weighing your purse;

    Your mood and your robe are both a deep blue, Youd bet that Job had nothing on you.

    Dont forget that when you get to heaven youll be blest. Yes, its all for the (Jesus: You must never be distressed.)

    Yes, its all for the (Jesus: All your wrongs will be redressed.) Yes, its all for the (Judas: Someones got to be oppressed.)

    Yes, its all for the best!

    5th and 7th: Some men are born to live at ease, doing what they please,

    Richer than the bees are in honey; Never growing old, never feeling cold,

    Pulling pots of gold from thin air. The best in every town, best at shaking down,

    Best at making mountains of money. They cant take it with them, but what do they care?

    They get the center of the meat, cushions on their feet, Houses on a street where its sunny.

    Summers at the sea, winters warm and free, All of this and we get the rest.

    But who is the land for? The sun and the sand for? You guessed, its all for the

    Yes, its all for the (Jesus: You must never be distressed.) Yes, its all for the (Jesus: All your wrongs will be redressed.) Yes, its all for the (Judas: Someones got to be oppressed.)

    Yes, its all for the best!

  • 7. All Good Gifts

    Alex: We plow the fields and scatter the good seed on the land,

    But it is fed and watered by Gods almighty hand. He sends the snow in winter, the warmth to swell the grain,

    The breezes and the sunshine, and soft refreshing rain. All good gifts around us

    Are sent from heaven above. Then thank the Lord, O, thank the Lord for all his love.

    All: We thank thee then, O Father, for all things bright and good, The seed time and the harvest, Our life, our health, our food.

    No gifts have we to offer For all thy love imparts,

    But that which thou desirest, Our humble thankful hearts.

    Ensemble Singers: All good gifts around us

    Are sent from heaven above

  • 10. Beautiful City

    Luke: Out of the ruins and rubble

    Out of the smoke Out of our night of struggle, Can we see a ray of hope?

    One pale thin ray Reaching for the day.

    We can build a beautiful city, Yes, we can Yes, we can.

    We can build a beautiful city, Not a city of angels,

    But we can build a city of man. When your trust is all but shattered,

    When your faith is all but killed; You can give up bitter and battered,

    Or you can slowly start to build

    All: A beautiful city.

    Yes, we can Yes, we can.

    We can build a beautiful city, Not a city of angels

    Luke: But finally a city of man.
