Embolden My Heart

Embolden My Heart
Copyright © 2012 Bret Hesla. bret.hesla@gmail.com

1. Without risk you can’t be open.
Without that you won’t build trust.
Without trust there’s no community uniting them and us.
Without unity what legacy will we be passing on
But a lonely type of safety some call “home”?

O dear Desire of Peace, come embolden my heart.
Embolden my heart, to bloom into community.
O dear Desire of Peace, come embolden my heart;
embolden my heart to bloom.

2. Without risk there is no justice
Without justice there’s no peace
Without peace there is no hope and without hope there is no dream
Without dreams there’s no tomorrow. No tomorrow? What’s today
But a empty way to burn some time at home?
