Lyrics to Auld Lang Syne
Jim Scott, inspired
Gerald Dillenbeck, deranged
May all who venture forth today
be welcome ‘ere we go,
And those who risk a gesture kind
reap all that we would sow.
For love will reach across this time
disarming anger here.
Let all misunderstanding rest
these last hours of our fear.
May all find shelter in our warmth
of new friends as with old,
Where errors past may be forgiv’n,
bright futures swell foretold.
Beyond these embers dying here
to raise a flame anew
Unbound by clock and climate fear,
our song rings clear and true.
Let tales of loss and victory
inspire us all again
And may bold resolve find support
of healthy climate friends.
Surrender final judgments here
so small in vast pretext.
Thus might these last nights of our fear
be first lights of what’s next.
