La Raison d'être

My soul is awake
I'm not afraid to sing,
To give each note my essence,
Every fibre of my being.

The rise and fall
Of each beautiful phrase,
With its passionate call
Sets my heart ablaze.

Quicken, oh voice, be swift,
Dispense joyfully, and wide,
The song is a gift
That must not stay inside.
