All hope for love to own, but love demands to be given;
Love mighty living fast-flowing stream, dies by damning;
In greedy man-made lakes, love stagnates, and away is driven;
Love evaporating in heavy mist, forming clouds of sorrow lining;
Raining down heavy drops, re-gathering mighty stream, life re-given;
Love hoarded dies then in air rises, born-again ever-flowing, eternally- living;
Life nurturing along its banks, those who by faith in Love abide, in hope joy livens;
Love is God and God is Love; Mighty Rolling Eternal Living River, eternal- life-giving!
