I am new to steampunk but I have found myself irevokably drawn towards it both as as a social statement and a cultural aesthetic. I don't really know much about the world of steampunk as found in literature but I have enjoyed nearly every movie people generaly recomend as a steampunk universe. I attend the Salvation Army Highpoint Church in Victoria and likely feel somewhat drawn to this sub culture as there is also a sub (sub) culture within the Salvation Army of High Collar wearing traditionalists who would love to see a return to the glory days of the Victorian Era. Here is a snipet from the songbook;
1. God of concrete, God of steel,
God of piston and of wheel,
God of pylon, God of steam,
God of girder and of beam,
God of atom, God of mine,
All the world of power is thine!
2. Lord of cable, Lord of rail,
Lord of motorway and mail,
Lord of rocket, Lord of flight,
Lord of soaring satellite,
Lord of lightning’s livid line,
All the world of speed is thine!
3. Lord of science, Lord of art,
God of map and graph and chart,
Lord of physics and research,
Word of Bible, Faith of Church,
Lord of sequence and design,
All the world of truth is thine!
4. God whose glory fills the earth,
Gave the universe its birth,
Loosed the Christ with Easter’s might,
Saves the world from evil’s blight,
Claims mankind by grace divine,
ALL THE WORLD OF LOVE IS THINE!
