This song was originally published in the Vocal Selections (and also in All Sondheim, Vol. 3) in a longer form than seems to have ever been heard in performance. Between the two verses as heard in performance and on the cast recording of the original production came these lyrics:

Between the hills of tomorrow

At times the road may seem strange,

The hills lie deep

And the way is steep,

But for those who dare 

The world is there

To change.

Then raise the torch

And seize the day!

Behold our banners fly to mark the way!

Standards billowing, unsullied, proud . . .

Visions bright, voices loud!
