May the food that we eat
And the friends that we share
Give us strength for spreading
True justice and peace.
We are children of the Cosmos,
We are subject to its laws,read more
The Cosmos in all its wonder
SINGS A MAGIC SONG.read more
Charge our hearts with wonder,
God of sheer delight,
As we sense your presence
Filling day and night.
If Heaven is more than simply a place,
If pictures of God evolve evermore,
If love is affirmed as life’s highest grace
The mystery remains, the sacred expands
To gift compassion’s transforming embrace.
When masks of God both age and die,
With intervening deities,
As doctrines lose their rigid hold
And freedoms grow like forest trees
Leave behind illusion’s ways
Culture plants within the mind,
Clothed in vestments of the faith
Masking truths we need to find,
No one can share my inner space;
There I am alone, yet not alone,
For you are there, O God,
Deeper than my thinking,
An awakening is beginning,
The half living now arise.
All those scales which they accepted
Are now falling from their eyes.
Let opposites all share a common space,
The inner and the outer be as one;
Each mind reflect life’s interweaving grace
And hearts all find God’s presence deep within.
O child within the Christmas scene
Come play with us today.
Melt all the ice within our hearts
And warm us as we play.
Look behind the festive scene
Both to factory and land;
Contemplate the labour force
Using both the mind and hand.
