From a very different culture,
Flowing from some ancient place,
Stories in our sacred scripture
Authored by a diff’rent race.
Yet we search for understanding
Not in any literal way;
Finding meaning is demanding;
We’ve moved on from yesterday.
Where is heaven in our cosmos?
Is some hell just round the bend?
Is there order or just chaos?
Does faith help us comprehend?
Darwin’s process of selection
Gives rise to humanity;
Modern thought should prompt reflection
On Nicaea’s trinity.
Shall we ever limit questions?
Stop our probing; asking “Why?”
Unafraid of new suggestions;
We shall search until we die!
Tune: Stuttgart (Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus) or other 18.104.22.168
