Driving To Dover

We're driving to Dover

To commune with friends for a while.

Co-workers for Jesus,

We travel many a mile.

A retreat is our object;

To grow in faith and grace.

Sojourning in truth and freedom,

We renew and refresh our base.

For three days we'll strongly praise and worship

Our God in heaven above.

We'll pray with all our heart and soul,

As we grow in joy and love.

Now the retreat is over.

Many spiritual gifts we did receive.

Until the next time we meet together,

As brothers and sisters we take our leave.
