Jerry Goldsmith – The Hymn Of First Contact lyrics

The time comes in each planet's life, when the truth comes to light,
And touches every heart, to see it's time to start,
To build a future based on love, with some help from above;
Those always at our side, no more need to hide!
And so we gather here, courage that conquers fear,
To see that our grand dreams are finally drawing near.
Into our future we take flight, here tonight, hopes so bright,
Forever live and thrive, truly being alive!

Some say to join the galaxy means we'll cease to be free.
Eternal tyranny, imposed externally.
What freedoms do they seek to save? Kill and maim, world depraved!
Financial engorgement, trash the home planet!
A world freed from want, fear and exploitation!
The ancient evils gone, Paradise finally won!
We'll still speak what we think and feel, without fear jackboot's heel.
Now able live and thrive, truly being alive!

The quest for truth's a winding road, with no map, pothole filled.
It's journey, long and hard, can lead to broken hearts,
When old beliefs are challenged hard, despair soon plays it's card.
Of no help: charlatans, disinformation.
The liars and con men, confusin' misleadin',
Serve no one but themselves, pursing power, wealth.
To find the truth we must be wise, discern fact, reject lies,
If we're to live and thrive, truly being alive.

The wisdom of the ages comes down to Earth, from above.
Many different stories, most of them built on love.
Once back stories are set aside, core truths can no more hide.
Then wisdom sets the stride, for our trekkin' ride!
Shall we destroy ourselves, for sake of ancient tales?
Or focus on what's shared, a future never dared!
The galaxy awaits us now!, if only we see how,
To always live and thrive, truly being alive!

The time's come in our planet's life, now the truth comes to light!
Let it touch every heart, inspire us to start,
To make a future built with love, we'll have help from above,
They're always at our side, coming out of hidin'!
Tonight we've gathered here, in hope and faith, sans fear,
And see that our grand dreams, no more to wait, they're here!
Into our future we take flight, here tonight, hopes so bright,
We'll ever live and thrive -- truly being alive!
