There we are

An ethics based on virtues rules no more

Two more 10 Second Prayers

An ethics based on virtues rules no more

Remember honor courage and prudence

A single value trumps all these at core

A way of life that’s based on common sense

The value is called non-idolatry

It means there is no god upon this earth

It means we accept mystery

Choosing things to which we give most worth

Best let proved values light the way

Give tolerance and helpfulness their place

Let fairness and democracy hold sway

Seek truth and beauty try to live by grace

No matter what we call Reality

it is where we all live

Let us affirm then what we see

We only move ahead as we forgive
