Celebration Song

© 1992 Jeffrey Hellman

 

 

Another day, another ray

of sunshine in the fields

Growing things, sometimes growing lean,

Fate can be a bitter pill.

 

Friends and family come together

To share the joy and yes the pain

And the corn, its out there growin

All it wants is sun and rain.

 

Today we share the fruits

of the stalk and of the vine

Celebration is as ancient

As the harvest and the tide

 

Let's raise a flag and a flagon

Join our hands in thanks on high

Sing the praises of the ages

Its still good to be alive.
