One Lord one Faith one Baptism
A people who read the same Book
A people with a shared history
A people who call one another Brethren

It is a community that survived
The leaders were burned
Governments stood against the membership
They were scattered through persecution

The community survived the fall of governments
The community survived crossing the Atlantic
The community survived plagues of dust and locusts
The community survived a culture with a different morality

Today the community fights
There is a fight for the conscience of the nation
A sense that an election might decide moral character
The community fights the arguments of today

They survived when their voices were silenced
Can they survive when invited to elect congress?
