There is but one good vision

Tune: Thornbury

There is but one good vision,
That age to age remains,
It has been there through all time
Though often one may doubt,
That vision that unites us 
Is showing love around
To others on our journey 
By word and deed and thought.

To find those lost in darkness,
And share with them our light.
To feed those who are hungry
And need a hand in life.
To heal the broken hearted
And bring them light and love
To speak against oppressions 
To see all people freed.

It is a task made easier,
When others we may see,
Have in their life and journey
Shown love to those around.
By bringing peace and justice

The way ahead they’ve shown
A way that we can follow 
In spirit and in truth.

We seek through meditation
And prayer our way ahead.
That what we do is pleasing
To God our living head.
That in our songs and worship
The light of Christ we shed.
Our vision still is goodness
That leads the way ahead.
