When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,

To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among others,
To make music in the heart.

~Howard Thurman, cited in “Black Fire: African American Quakers on Spirituality and Human Rights”
