Canticle of the Earthfriends

Hey! Todd has written a special hymn to welcome the gorebertine community to SOV2. You'll be hearing the hymn on Sunday, when we'll be using it for the entrance, offering, communion, and exiting parts of the service, but here's a sneak peek at the lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Sun, sun, look: there's the sun!
what a joyous and sp'r'ted afternoon
See the sun, hear the rushing wind
we are one with sun and star and moon

Sun, moon, moon and sun again
flowers, bees, and trees and dancing fawns
Dance, sing, dance a dance of song
Leaping, laughing gaily on the lawns

[Verse 2]
Here comes the Spirit dressed as a tree
what a joyous and sp'r'ted ev-en-ing
Join your hands, join us joyfully
joyfully your joy will make you sing!


[Verse 3]
Moon, moon! Look, there's the moon!
what a joyous and sp'r'ted mo-orning
As you butter up your bread and look ahead
You'll see the Spirit fast aborning

Too bad he couldn't find a place in there to "laugh laughily a laughing song"
