When I was a boy, I would always hear scary things in the news and my mother would say to me, "Always look for the helpers. Everywhere you look you will always find people helping." - Fred Rogers


I was there, siting in the trees.
The rowboats singing out melodies.
Beautiful rivers of gleaming gold free me of my mind.
Everywhere I go, His love I find.
From the great beginning to the parting shots.
I will never have second thoughts.

Whisper to the oceans, go tell the Earth.
Everyone is wonderful. Everyone, since birth.
Gleaming and shining like diamonds so bright.
How could they ever lose their light?
How is this beauty starting to die?
How can people not see? please tell me why.

I was there when the ashes arose from the ground.
Blinded by the holy light, deafened by sound.
I was there when the dead arose.
The day that the world lost all foes.
I remember the eyes of the bands of strings.
The angel flies down to me, and in pure joy he sings.

Whisper to the oceans, go tell the Earth.
Everyone is wonderful. Everyone, since birth.
Gleaming and shining like diamonds so bright.
How could they ever lose their light?
How is this beauty starting to die?
How can people not see? please tell me why.
