Belonging

We belong to each other, and
In that belonging, forgiveness we find.
We belong to each other, and
In that belonging, we give our heart and mind.
Belonging to each other, we seek our soul,
Led by the Holy Ghost, whose living waters
Cascade over and within us, to cleanse
And to make pure our psychic whole.

We strengthen and renew ourselves
Blessed through our communion
Of faith and hope and love and laughter.
For Jesus Christ our Lord
Through His belonging to us
Redeems us by His being
And gathers us unto Him undivided,
As one, belonging each to other.

Belonging with each other
We share His love.
Belonging with each other
His cross we also bear.
Belonging with each other
We strive for justice and truth.
Belonging with each other
We find the proof
Of faith, in fellowship.

United in harmonious prayer and song
To all and to each other we belong,
Offering to the Lord our praise
We shine like the auroras
And move like swirling starlings’ shoals
Composing their magic unison across the summer skies.
We are the drops in universal seas
Of adoration to our Holy King
The Three in One and One in Three.
