Rights Are Not Equivalent to Freedom

Music: Ma mere l'oye - 5: Le Jardin Feerique.

Rights are not equivalent to freedom.
All have claims upon the lives of all.
Make yourself a servant of the kingdom,
Acting in the interests of the whole.
Deeds are sermons preached upon the plain
As each from each has much to lose or gain;
Nor is faith the free choice of one soul.
