Given It All Of My Best

I’ve gone and given it all of my best
And no this ain’t my time to go rest
‘Cause you went set me loss on a quest
A free and responsible search for truth and meaning
As a result I now have a spiritual leaning
For depth in our Sunday morning worship services see
‘Cause I’ve already had religious introductions given to me
‘Bought things from Judaism to human sexuality in RE
So I wanna take it to the next level
And this might get me perceived as a rebel
But I don’t think I’m alone on this here
‘Cause fellow raised UUs that I’ve conversed do appear
To desire more ritual in worship like I’d here
As you may have guessed I’m saying to watch
What could be if we UUs turned up a notch
Even just one the depth of our religious thought
We’d have more I think staying here from young to old age

Finally Time

Going to unleash the
Big one this time
‘Cause its finally time
For us to mature
This thing we’ve now
In this sacred space
We’re just being spiritual
Spiritually oh so adolescent

Going to unleash the
Big one this time
‘Cause its time for
Us to be able
To say this thing
In this sacred space
It’s our own spiritualities
That are now maturing

Going to unleash the
Big one this time
‘Cause its finally time
For us to mature

Finally time
For us
To mature
This thing
In our
Sacred spaces
And it’s
Our spiritualities

Raised UU

We were taught to love learning
And to always be questioning constructively
Just so one day hopefully we’d be able to stand tall
Tall knowing why we’ve come to believe what we believe
That was back in Sunday school
That was back in Sunday school
Wen we were still kids growing up in Unitarian Universalist
community

We were kids growing up in Unitarian Universalist community
Well before we got sent out into the world
And fond that there is nothing quite like a raised UU

And a raised UU is a real emotional and hugging loving creature

We were taught to love ourselves
And be of others always excepting
Just so one day hopefully we’d be able to stand tall
Knowing that we’ve come to be some really caring people
That was back in Sunday school
That was back in Sunday school
Wen we were still kids growing up in Unitarian Universalist
community

We were kids growing up in Unitarian Universalist community
Well before we got sent out into the world
And fond that there is nothing quite like a raised UU

Some of us went way with
Good foundations into the wider world
Some of us we’re still here ‘cause Unitarian Universalist
community it
It’s still sustains and enriches us and that’s so cool

We were kids growing up in Unitarian Universalist community
Well before we got sent out into the world
And fond that there is nothing quite like a raised UU

Circle Worship

It’s powerful wen you
Along with me and them
Are entering holding hands
And singing in beautiful unison

It’s magical this space
Wen we’re here all together
For the sacred healing
That we bring each other

We’ll light a chalice
To honour all of this
Us and our community
And this here vary place

Here could be here
Or it could be there
It doesn’t matter where
As long as you’re here

To sing some songs
To hear some readings read
To do some rituals
To be in silence some

It’s powerful wen you
Along with me and them
Are exiting holding hands
And singing in beautiful unison

And wen it’s don
We’ll bask in its glow
With a hymn sing
Or a big group hug

In Community

We came to be
You and me
In community

And we’ll meat
With hugs wen we greet
For the first and every time
And then we’ll sing maybe in rime
All ‘bout our fun
We had on the run
It was filed with so much sweet lunacy

The run towards the magic pool
Which would give us the much-needed school
Lesions in who to be utterly knocked of our feet
From our heads to the ground do to the heat
Of sweet expression all ‘round us

Don’t have no tears
Or even fears
‘Cause safe we did play ‘round
Yes we did it in churches on many a big bedding mound
And too in they’re many a sanctuary hall
It was for the pursuit of spirituality that did call
Yes we came in vanes, see nun came by bus

We came to be
You and me
In community

And we’ll meat
With hugs wen we greet
For the first and every time
And then we’ll sing maybe in rime
All ‘bout our fun
We had on the run
It was filed with so much sweet lunacy

The run towards the magic pool
Which would give us the much-needed school
Lesions in how to be utterly knocked of our feet
From our heads to the ground do to the heat
Of sweet expression all ‘round us

Don’t have no tears
Or even fears
‘Cause safe we did play ‘round
Yes we did it in churches on their many a campus ground
And in they’re many a classroom
It was for pursuit of workshops that we did swoon
Yes we came in vanes, see nun came by bus

We came to be
You and me
In community

It’s Not Foolish To Want A Place Here

It’s not foolish to want to stay
It’s not foolish to want a place here
Yes I need a place here to use what I learnt in my teen years
It’s not foolish to want to stay here
Yes it was here back wen I was a youth that I learnt so much
Yes it began in the downstairs corner room
And it ended in the upstairs room you call the apartment
But did it have to end?
Yes I know it had to end for me
But surely what it taught me couldn’t it have been incorporated into something suitable for me and my fellow young adults
Is it not true that you teach us to find out what we believe in
And is it not true that you teach us to live what we believe
So if we find out what we believe is true for us, then is it not, not foolish to think we can live it out here
Can’t we live it out here under the big steeple
It’s not foolish to want to stay
It’s not foolish to want a place here

You Saved Me

That Intangible Feeling

That intangible feeling
It dos not come often
But it comes on strong
It’s a real feeling of joy
It draws you in for a will
It’s a real spiritual experience
It’s sweet ecstasy
It dos not last for long
It can come to you wen you are spontaneously chanting with your friends, moving to the beat of some hypnotic tun or simply siting silently in the dark, it doesn’t really mater
But you will know it when it hits you
Some have experienced it wen they where walking a labyrinth or just watching the sun set or rise
You will know it when it hits you
It dos not come often
But I love it wen it hits me
You will know it wen it hits you
You will know it wen it hits you
