All we saw was hope growing green
Over every mountain and every stream
In the beginning, in the beginning.

But now we have the climbed the mountaintop
Built on ambition that refused to stop,
And suddenly, we see
The mountain desolate and gray,
Ideals the price we pay.

And suddenly, we remember
Hope growing green over every mountain and every stream,
In the beginning, in the beginning.
