Stout-Hearted Men

People, apart from donating small amounts of money have also been singing for us. In Cagayan de Oro we were serenaded with "Stout-Hearted Men", a Hammerstein song from the Broadway musical, "The New Moon":

You who have dreams,
If you act, they will come true.
To turn your dream to a fact It's up to you.
If you have the soul and the spirit,
Never fear it, you'll see it through.
Hearts can inspire other hearts with their fire,
For the strong obey when a strong man
Shows them the way.

Give me some men who are stout-hearted men
Who will fight for the right they adore.
Start me with ten, who are stout-hearted men
And I'll soon give you ten thousand more.

Oh! Shoulder to shoulder and bolder and bolder
They grow as they go to the fore!
Then there's nothing in the world can halt or mar a plan,
When stout-hearted men can stick together man to man!
