O Music! Towards you I wander
after longing for a lovely friend.
You open your arms wide,
tell me I’m not alone,
hold me close to your soul,
and assure me I’m safe.
Powerful rhythms to prove
that others feel the same way.
Whenever I listen to you
I feel as if I can do more
to contribute to my own life.
Music dances its way into my heart
and demands that I pay close attention.
Teach me the ways of the world,
teach me how to be myself,
teach me to live with confidence.
O Music! You have given me friends
other than yourself to rely on.
I feel I have a home
full of comfort and warmth.
