It matters that the workd knows
We must celebrate the gift of life
Everyday in some way
We must always remember to play after every storm
All children are truly blessed
With the innocent gifts of gentleness, trust, and compassion
To guide the wisdom of the grown-ups
We all have a song in our heart
That inspires us in good times
And hard times
If we take the time to listen

[Chorus:]
It matters, it matters, oh, it matters that the world knows

Our senses help discover the hidden and non-hidden
Enchantment in life, if we use them
We must carefully choose our words and wants
Or we could forever hurt others
With these dangerous weapons
Strength and calue of all things created
Must be measured by character and commitment
Rather than by might
And by wealth

[Repeat Chorus]

We must head the lessons of everyday life
Through the celebration of children and heartsongs,
Senses and words
Or we could lose in our journey
To the future

It matters

A person by my name and being existed
With a strong spirit and an eternam mindset
To become a peacemaker for all
By sharing the things that really matter.
