SHANTY 
And so it was that you were born 
Into this world one winter morning, 
With a childish innocence you smiled at me 
And I was born again. 

BOY SOLO 
Non nobis solum 
Sed toti mundo 

BOYS' CHOIR 
Nati, 
Mundo nati. 

BOY SOLO 
Toti mundo nati. 

MEN'S CHORUS 
God is good 
And He will be our savior, 
All we need 
Is in His power to give us. 
Let the light that lies within 
His heart 
Illuminate our being. 

FULL CHORUS 
God is good 
And with this thought to guide us 
We will live 
In joyful contemplation. 
Let the love that lives within your heart 
Illuminate your being. 

PREACHER 
What people want is a family life, 
The strength of a home and a moat round the castle. 
Pull up the drawbridge, 
Staying at home with the family. 

All people want is a family life, 
Sometimes they find that it isn't so easy. 
People can argue, 
Life can be hard on a family. 

BASSES 
Mum's in the kitchen, she won't speak to Dad. 

ALTOS 
Uncle's ashamed of the good time he had. 

TENORS 
Brothers and sisters are lifting the roof 
With the music they play all night. 

PREACHER 
But people still want a family life, 
Nothing replaces the love and affection. 
Pull up the drawbridge 
Tempers are frayed, but it's like that. 

ALTOS 
Don't be dismayed if it's like that. 

BASSES 
Like that. 

PREACHER 
You're not obeyed but you like that -family life. 

BOYS and ALTOS 
God is good. 
In Him we'll live for ever, 
Satisfied 
Inside His grace and glory, 

FULL CHORUS 
Safe and sound 
In His eternal love 
We have found salvation. 

NURSE 
Dad's In the garden, he won't speak to M 

MARY DEE Mother. 

NURSE 
Uncle's in bed with a pain in his... 

SHANTY 
The Devil is evil 

PREACHER 
And God is good. 

MARY DEE 
The Devil is evil 

SHANTY With a D. 

MARY DEE 
And God is good 

SHANTY Without an O. 

MARY DEE and NURSE God is good without an O. 

SHANTY and PREACHER 
0... 

MARY DEE and NURSE 
And so we are grateful for harmony 
For we will be faithful 

SHANTY and PREACHER 
Eternally. 

MARY DEE, NURSE, SHANTY and PREACHER 
(Ah) 

FULL CHORUS 
(Ah) 
God is good, 
The universal savior. 
Trust in Him 
To lead us through the darkness. 
Live in love and when the battle's won 

MARY DEE and NURSE 
Live in peace. 

SHANTY and PREACHER 
Live in peace. 

FULL CHORUS 
Live in peace for ever. 

SOLO QUARTET 
Live in peace. 

ALL Live in peace together. 

SHANTY 
So on and on the story goes 
From day to day throughout our lives. 

MARY DEE 
What can we do, 
that's how it grows. 
I am with you, 

MARY DEE and SHANTY 
Our love survives. 

END
