70. Oh Child Do Not Despair

1 Oh child do not despair
It's hard to see from there
So let us lift you way up high
So you can see the sky

2 And on our shoulders stand
To survey all the land
Then looking far and looking free
Please tell us what you see

3 May children ev'rywhere
Not ever know despair
May all find shoulders to the sky
And all be lifted high.
