River of Life

River of Life

River of life, ending all strife,

Coming from Christ who is temple and priest;

Wash down our streets, cleanse our conceits,

Open our jails and get us released

From under the steeple, to serving the people.

Spirit of life, cut out like a knife

Clutter and habits whose logic has ceased;

Pull up the blinds, broaden our minds,

Help us to serve a contemporary feast,

Not locked in the steeple, but blessing the people.

The above poem was used by Rev Jock Stein in leading the worship at our 2010 Conference.
