Avail dear Citizens in the beauty

Bourgnew's Proverbs 2

How do you keep a nation together?

How do you preserve a union?

How do you united individuals?

You must set the law

Give them the law and they shall

know right from wrong

they shall know freedom from bondage

They shall know how to lead

For the opposite of the law is chaos

The opposite of freedom is bondage

The opposite of hope is confusion

The opposite of light is darkness

We must choose to obey just law

for that makes us just citizens

We must choose to listen to freedom

for that makes us freed indeed

We must choose to follow hope

for that makes us one

Avail dear citizens

Avail dear citizens

Avail dear citizens

in the beauty of brotherhood and unity
