Salesians of Don Bosco – Philippine South Province FIS

From Ashes Soar

I look back to see a receding gray
And forward on to a golden day
Cast across the verdant green
And emerald sea unseen

Roses bloom to kiss the sky
Sunflowers then nod by and by
To hail the golden reign of sun
His majesty’s royal rise and run

Red feathers drop then carelessly
In gust of wind to leaves of tree
Takes flight that bird of hope and light
Rebirth of passion, delight to sight

Sway more again the blades of grass
Arise once more new life en masse
To face the opening and opportunity
To grow and grow so tirelessly

Soar high it goes to endless heights
To tongues of fiery might and bright
Be crowned with sun’s pure golden beam
Courage, hope, and joy redeem
