YOUR ONE VOICE 

 

Snowflakes, drifting down

 

Catching the light as they dance around,

Whirling and twirling and spinning 'round,

Glint in the sun as they dance around.

Crystal patterns, color and light

How lovely

And each one new

Yet altogether dancing

A crystal rainbow of lace and light.

 

One note, sounded alone

Once intoned starts rolling out

Touches another, rolling out

And two notes, together now

Different than when they were alone

A new song

Is sounding now

And all together we weave it,

Creating a song with our one special note.

 

Your voice, different than mine

Sings a song in your own special time

Ringing out and touching mine.

Every time it touches mine

All our notes forever are changed.

We thank you

For your one voice

Our symphony is a new one

Now you have changed it with your one voice.

 

traditional Vietnamese melody.
