*Covenant ( Spoken in Unison)
Love is the doctrine of this church
The quest for truth is its sacrament
And service is its prayer.
To dwell together in peace,
To seek knowledge in freedom,
To serve humanity in fellowship,
To the end that all souls shall grow
Into harmony with the divine:
Thus do we covenant together.
