Defines church as active thought rather than a building, infinite in its embrace rather than confined to certain people, universal law rather than narrow creeds.

A Prayer for Church
Lyrics and music by Elizabeth Ragsdale

Verse 1
Let me see not steeple and stone,
a church that stands and waits,
defined by space.
Show me thought prepared to go
where Truth waits to be taught
and Love is sought.

Chorus
Oh let me know the church designed
by You alone, oh Love divine.
By You alone, Love divine.

Verse 2
Let me reach beyond the list
of those I sit beside,
identified.
Give me church that’s infinite,
embracing ev’ry face
of ev’ry race.

Chorus

Bridge
In moments of quietude
church finds its form,
this temple of Love and Truth.

Verse 3
Let me hear not narrow creeds,
whose formulas exclude
all but a few.
Speak of the justice that you teach,
universal law
that governs all.

Chorus
