As tranquil streams that meet and merge

Mon, 2015-03-30 14:48 -- Ben Treadaway

As tranquil streams that meet and merge
and flow as one to seek the sea,
Our kindred fellowships unite
to build a church that shall be free.

Free from the bonds that bind the mind
to narrow thought and lifeless creed;
Free from a social code that fails
to serve the cause of human need.

A freedom that reveres the past,
but trusts the dawning future more;
And bids the soul, in search of truth,
adventure boldly and explore.

Prophetic church, the future waits
the liberating ministry;
Go forward in the power of love,
proclaim the truth that makes us free.
