KING ARTHUR AND THE HOLY GRAIL
The Impossible Dream (The Quest)
|To dream the impossible dream |
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go.
To right the unrightable wrong
This is my quest, to follow that star,
And I know if I'll only be true to this glorious quest That my heart will lie peaceful and calm when I'm laid to my rest
