steeple, a Cross-bearing steeple,
a sign that below are people
Who come together in one accord
To worship and serve their risen Lord
And are His body with Him as head
To do His works on Earth in His stead
By translating their faith into deeds
To satisfy a hurting worlds needs;
By preaching Christ, and Him crucified,
And teaching truths in which to abide;
By seeking to win all who are lost
In every land and not count the cost.
