It is well to love your neighbor
Take his load in heavy labor
Live as one with the Holy Savior
Live to please with your behavior

Praise each other love each other
Know what it is to have a brother
Help cast away resentful tones
Let rumors fill the lake with stones

A simple sweetness of Heavenís dew
Blessed upon those who say its true
Brother take my arms and sing a dirge
Or else from where will this dream emerge

Just as you said Walt... the Bible gives great inspiration! Great Work!

like lines, never-ending,
constantly forming,
reforming and bending."
