Keeper

As you look across the frontier

What is it that you see

A land of strange people

Different from you and me

As you look across the border

A man made line upon a map

Do you decide that to keep order

You will have to keep them out

As you look upon the strangers

Are they enemies to despise

Or do you see them as your neighbour

Humanity in the world – and friends

What is your future vision

Build walls to keep them away

And go our separate ways

Or build bridges and say welcome

In the world where we all live

Where we will work together

And each other’s keeper be
