If You Believe
You are the cast of the new generation
With fresh hopes and inquiring minds,
Who are called by Fate and your forebears
To improve the conditions you find.
The time is now, your Destiny awaits,
Many roles are assigned to your care ~
To heal the sick, to build a bridge, or
To bring hope where there is despair.
The stage is set your skills are honed,
The first act will soon begin; and
As the curtain lifts, let your confidence rise
It’s the trait most needed to win.
So trust in yourself, forsake all doubts,
Each of you, woman or man
For you will succeed if you just try, and
If you believe you can.
