Like a boat that sails us home
Like a star that leads us on
The compass we’re steering by
A place that we someday hope to see

Sustainability
We can save the things we love before they’re gone
Sustainability
Let the beauty of the Earth live on and on
For generations

It’s a science and an art
It’s a dream in every heart
A vision we can’t let go
A hope that will someday set us free …

Sustainability
We can save the things we love before they’re gone
Sustainability
Let the beauty of the Earth live on and on
For generations
Generations …
