BEAUTIFUL SEED

(written by Corrinne May Ying Foo, copyright 2006)

You can fill the darkness
with just one flash of light
Break the silence with just one word
One defiance starts a revolution
One life can save the world

On the steps of Washington
Sprinkled like confetti
Thousands of people sing
"We shall overcome"
The preacher shouts :
"Let freedom ring."
He gave his life for what he believed

You can be a witness
You can be a prophet
You can make the whole world believe
Break the strongest fortress
Change the way the world thinks
You can build a bridge where
foes can meet
Hope for the future
Shout it, don't whisper
Dreams are what we make them to be
There is hope in every heartbeat
Tiny as it seems
You're a beautiful seed

She's a pastor's daughter
She's only 16
But her heart and her belly
are breaking at the seams
Her boyfriend blames her,
he wants to pay
for the doctor to wash it away

As she lays in the hospital,
A Christmas choir is singing
About a child in a manger,
fragile and small
"Unto us is born a Savior"
She looks at her baby and cries
as she sings him a lullaby.

You can be a witness
You can be a prophet
You can make the whole world believe
Break the strongest fortress
Change the way the world thinks
You can build a bridge where
foes can meet
Hope for the future
in the tiniest whisper
Dreams are what we make them to be
There is hope in every heartbeat
Tiny as it seems
You're a beautiful seed

Every hope, every power
lies in the heart of a seed that flowers
Intertwined all across the land
We're all seeds in the Maker's hands.
