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

For generations

It’s a science and an art
It’s a dream in every heart

Sustainability

Sustainability
Let the beauty of the Earth live on and on
For generations
Generations …
