"In the Beginning"

[JAPHETH, YONAH]
This step is one again our first
We set our feet upon a virgin land
We hold the promise of the earth
In our hands

{JAPHETH, YONAH, MAMA NOAH, NOAH]
No flood from heaven comes again
No deluge will destroy and purify
We hold the fate of man and men
In our hands

[FAMILY]
Now at this dawn so green and glad
We pray that we may long remember
How lovely was the world we had
In the beginning

Of all the gifts we have received
One is most precious and most terrible
The will of each of us is free
It's in our hands

And if one day we hear a voice
If he should speak again, our silent father
All he will tell us is the choice
Is in our hands

Our hands can choose to drop the knife
Our hearts can choose to stop the hating
For every moment of our life
Is the beginning

[FATHER]
There is no journey gone so far
So far we cannot stop and change direction
No doom is written in the stars

[FAMILY]
It's in our hands

[ALL]
We cannot know what wil occur
Just make the journey worth the taking
And pray we're wiser than we were
In the beginning
It's the beginning
Now we begin

Children of Eden
Grant us your pardon
All that we leave to you
Is the unknown

Children of Eden
Seek for your garden
You and your children to come
Some day to come home
Home
