1. There is a circle like a crown
that spirals up and spirals down,
a golden cord that joins us all,
the strong and weak, the great and small.

2. Filled up with God, the Savior fills
his friends with God, and God instills
in them a will to take and share
the bright and blessed Gift they bear.

3. And those receiving gifts from them
receive, as well, the gift of him
who sends, like angels from above,
a rushing wind of bracing love.

4. And all who share the gifts they get
begin repayment of the debt,
"For all you give the least of these,
you give," the Savior says, "to me!"

5. There is a circle like a crown
that spirals up and spirals down,
a golden cord that joins us all,
the strong and weak, the great and small.
