The Impossible Dream

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
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into hell
For a heavenly cause
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
And the world
Will be better for this
That one man, scorned
And covered with scars,
Still strove with his last
Ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star
To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To run where the brave dare not go
Though the road be forever too high
To try though you’re wayward and weary
To reach the unreachable star
To reach the unreachable star
Though you know it’s impossibly high
To live with your heart striving upwards
To reach the unreachable star

Sung by Jim Nabors, composed by Mitch Leigh, lyrics by Joe Darion.
