HAIKU POEM
ROSALIENE BACCHUS

Come sing a song of joy for peace shall come, my brother
Sing, sing a song of joy for men shall love each other.

That day will dawn just as sure as hearts that are pure,
Are hearts set free. No man must stand alone
With outstretched hand before him.

Reach out and take them in yours with love
That endures forevermore. Then sing a song of joy
For love and understanding.

Come sing a song of joy of freedom tell the story.
Sing, sing a song of joy for mankind in his glory.
One mighty voice that will bring a sound
That will ring forevermore.
Then sing a song of joy for love and understanding.

Come sing a song of joy of freedom tell the story.
Sing, sing a song of joy for mankind in his glory.
One mighty voice that will bring a sound
That will ring forevermore.
Then sing a song of joy for love and understanding.

"A Song of Joy" is a modern adaptation of "Ode to Joy," the
1911 English translation of the German song, "Ode an die
Freude," composed by the poet Friedrich Schiller in 1785 to
celebrate the brotherhood and unity of all mankind.

Sung by four vocal soloists and a chorus, Schiller's poem,
revised in 1803, has been preserved for future generations in
the final movement for the Ninth Symphony by Ludwig van
Beethoven, completed in 1824.
