  • Lyrics

    Music and Lyrics by: Cathy Neff (ASCAP)

    This life is a journey;
    This life is a song.
    This life is a river
    That moves along.
    This life is a mountain
    That needs to be climbed.
    This life is the perfect word
    That needs to be rhymed.

    *And I stand ready,
    Ready to learn,
    Ready to go, and do, and be, and face every turn.
    Yes, I stand ready,
    Ready and strong
    To face every day,
    So come what may,
    I stand ready.

    He made the journey;
    He made the song.
    He made the river
    That moves along.
    He made the mountain
    He helps me to climb.
    He is the perfect word
    And we are the rhymes.*

    We don’t know the future,
    We learn from the past.
    We make sure our legacy
    Is one that will last.

    Oh, oh, oh, I’m ready.
    Oh, oh, oh, I’m ready to learn.

    I’m ready to go,
    I’m ready to do,
    I’m ready to be,
    I’m ready to win. *
