Rose and Cross - so is the battle lost?

Is there now no time to jive?

Rose and Cross - you know the price it's cost?

But the hope is still, the hope is still alive

Rosicrucius - is your story told?

Or is there still more to come?

Rosicrucius - from my simple soul

I shall eat the morning, eat the morning sun

Chorus: If I was ordered not to travel another mile

If I was told I could never see another city

There is one thing I'll always hold, that's the smile

Of the symbol that is peace, the white, white dove

Rose and Cross - can we ever toss

All our prejudice aside?

Rose and Cross - turn this petty loss

into hope and glory, hope and glory with pride?

Rosicrucians - paint your symbols fair

write your verses in the sand

Rosicrucians - you missed Baudelaire

But we still extend, we still extend our hand...
