Symbols of purity, flashes of grace,
Whispers of gentleness, sweet freedom chase
The dove spells good tidings, but when it is caged
No souls are delivered. God’s Word finds no place
In men’s hardened hearts, for they can’t find their way.
False messenger pigeons have led them astray.
Free the doves,
Let them loose,
Let God’s Spirit prevail.
Do not clip a wing
And do not snip a tail,
But open the cage,
Let them fly where they may.
Don’t hinder their progress
But heed what they say.
And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves. Matthew 21:12
