Each Seeking Faith

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Brian Wren
Tune Name: BROOKS

Lyrics as Poetry

Each seeking faith is seeking light,
and light dawns on our seeking
when clashing tongues combine
to pray that light will shine
and guide and gather all on earth
in peaceful greeting.Each seeking faith is seeking truth,
for truth is lived by seeking,
and though our faiths conflict,
no dogma can restrict
the power of truth set free on earth
in honest meeting.Each loving faith is seeking peace,
and peace is made by seeking
to spin the strands of trust
in patterns free and just,
till every family on earth
is in safe keeping.Each living faith is seeking life,
and life flows through our seeking
to treasure, feel and show
the heart of what we know.
In every faith the Light, the Life,
is shining, speaking.

Comments About Song

Author Brian Wren, from his book

“Flying to the USA in January 1987, I saw orthodox Jews reading Hebrew journals while a Muslim behind them bowed forward in prayer. Including myself, and no doubt many others, here were three world faiths in one enclosed space, a parable of life on planet earth. The first stanza was written on the plane, the remainder during the next two weeks. The adverbs are carefully chosen: not all expressions of religious faith are seeking, loving, peaceful or living.”
