Built to Love

In 1981, Stephen Waldron wrote about the TBC Centenary Musical "Built to Love"
"Two pictures emerged of the church as wonderful sources of ideas and images - the people of God as a temple of Living Stones, and God's people as a body. Within two weeks I had written all but one of the songs, such was the real inspiration that I felt came from God, and as time progressed it developed into a series of songs linked by narration and illustrated with dance and mime."

We are meant to be
A caring family,
That the world might see
We are built to love.

God distributes gifts,
So each one benefits;
When one falls others lift;
We are built to love.

Holy we must be
Or God will not see;
We must speak honestly,
For we are built to love.

Let us tell our friends,
God's new life never ends;
We've eternal life to spend;
We are built to love.

We are built to love,
We are built to love,
We are built to love,
We are built to love.
