Favorite Quote:
I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours. But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality. ~H.A. Overstreet

Don't cry, little child
The world has wronged you
Be brave little child
We're here for you.

Don't fear, little child
The world's a scary place
But be happy little child
Put a smile on your face

We've made up God's army
We're Zions one hope
As Workers of Service
We are the worlds rope

We're angels in scarlet
And as we sing our score
We know our hearts are needed
But our hands are needed more.

I wrote this after a service project that our church did to help the flood victims.
