The lyrics

1. And in the end, where have you come from?
And in the end, where are you going?
All the women in the past,
Who helped to shape this land,
Have firmly placed the key in your hand.

2. With care and love, not fear and hating,
Unlock the door, the future's waiting.
All the children of today,
Living in their time,
Are walking down the path that she paved.

Bridge: Come, celebrate,
Commemorate.
We are stronger for her giving,
We are better for her living.

3. And in the end, where have you come from?
And in the end, where are you going?
Ev'ry woman, now and then,
All the children and the men,
Will harvest what was sown
In the end.
