1 Break not the circle of enabling love
where people grow, forgiven and forgiving;
break not that circle - make it wider still,
till it includes, embraces all the living.
2 Come, wonder at this love that comes to life,
where words of freedom are with humour spoken
and people keep no score of wrong and guilt,
but will that human bonds remain unbroken.
3 Sing high! Give thanks for all who came and come
to teach the world the craft of hopeful craving
for peace and wholeness that will fill the earth,
for faith that stirs us to creative living.
4 Join then the movement of the love that frees,
till people of whatever race or nation
will truly be themselves, stand on their feet,
see eye to eye with laughter and elation.
