#1028 The Fire of Commitment

From the light of days remembered burns a beacon bright and clear;
Guiding hands and hearts and spirits into faith set free from fear.

Chorus:

When the fire of commitment sets our mind and soul ablaze;
when our hunger and our passion meet to call us on our way;
when we live with deep assurance of the faith that burns within;
then our promise finds fulfillment and our future can begin.

From the stories of our living rings a song both brave and free;
Calling pilgrims still to witness to the life of liberty;

Repeat chorus

From the dreams of youthful vision comes a new, prophetic voice;
Which demands a deepeer justice built by our courageous choice.

Repeat chorus

#1052 The Oneness of Everything

(Jim Scott)

Far beyond the grasp of hands,
or light to meet the eye,
past the reaches of the mind
There find the key to nature’s harmony
in an architecture so entwined.

Like the birds whose patterns grace the sky
and carry all who join in love expanding,
The message of peace will rise in flight
taking the weight of the world upon its wings,

In the oneness of ev’rything.

that touch our own are written in the earth evergiving,
And now to maintain the harmony
gives to us all lives worth living,
For the oneness of ev’rything.

Still we seek to find a truth
that we might understand

and reduce to terms defined
Vast and immeasurable time and space
all so overwhelmingly designed.

Oh, passing years just might I know the faith
that winters in the heart
to be reborn in spring.
To hear and to feel the pulse of life
enters my soul as a song to sing,
Of the oneness of ev’rything.

Everything Possible (#1019)

(Fred Small)

We have cleared off the table, the leftovers saved, washed the dishes and put them away.
I have told you a story and tucked you in tight at the end of your knockabout day.
As the moon sets its sail to carry you to sleep over the Midnight Sea,
Well, I will sign you a song no one sang to me—may it keep you good company.
