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:
CANTICLE OF THE EARTHFRIENDS
Todd Turk, Good Intentions Publications, Copyright 2007
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
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!
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
