Well if those "official" words are the best anyone can come up with, for heavens' sake leave it as an instrumental. They're dreadful words, reading very much like a clumsy translation of something that was pretentious and grandiose in the original (which I daresay is what they are). The syntax is chaotic (you can't even tell what the subject of some of the sentences is meant to be), it's fulll of heavy abstract concepts, and the rhymes are dire - repetition isn't rhyme. Awful stuff - write some new words or forget it, I'd say.
