The opening words are Another World is Possible, by Rev Ashley Horan.

Another world is possible.
We say it, again and again,
even when the proof lies somewhere beyond the horizon,
beyond our reach, beyond our imagination.
This is our faith:
Another world is possible…
…There are many routes toward liberation; toward freedom.
But the abundance of options does not
absolve us of the responsibility of acting.
Another world is possible…

The closing words are And Then, by Judy Chicago.

And then all that has divided us will merge
And then compassion will be wedded to power
And then softness will come to a world that is harsh and unkind
And then both men and women will be gentle
And then both women and men will be strong
And then no person will be subject to another’s will
And then all will be rich and free and varied
And then the greed of some will give way to the needs of many
And then all will share equally in the Earth’s abundance
And then all will care for the sick and the weak and the old
And then all will nourish the young
And then all will cherish life’s creatures
And then all will live in harmony with each other and the Earth
And then everywhere will be called Eden once again.
