We Are One in the Spirit

Beautiful song sung at church last Sunday that has been stuck in my head this week. Beautiful lyrics. Uplifting melody too!

We are one in the Spirit.
We are one in the Lord.
We are one in the Spirit.
We are one in the Lord.
And we pray that all unity
May one day be restored,
And they'll know we are Christians
By our love, by our love.
Yes, they'll know we are Christians
By our love.

We will walk with each other.
We will walk hand in hand.
We will walk with each other.
We will walk hand in hand.
And together we'll spread the news
That God is in our land,
And they'll know ...

We will work with each other.
We will work side by side.
We will work with each other.
We will work side by side.
And we'll give up all our dignity,
And crucify our pride,
And they'll know ...

All praise to the Father
From whom all blessings come.
And all praise to Christ Jesus
His only Son.
And all praise to the Spirit
Who makes us one.
And they'll know we are Christians
By our love, by our love.
Yes, they'll know we are Christins
By our love,
By our love,
By our love,
By our Love,
By our --

Love, love, love, love.
Christians this is your call.
Love your neighbor as yourself.
For God loves all.

Jesus, Jesus,
Let me tell You how I feel.
You have given me Your Spirit,
I love You so.

Praise the Father, praise the Son,
Praise the Spirit, three in One.
Praise the Father, praise the Son,
Praise the Spirit, three in One.

Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!
Hallelujah!

It is a classic.

Although the version I'm familiar with doesn't have all those verses at the end (where the tune kinda changes).

And instead of saying ...
"And we'll give up all our dignity,
And crucify our pride,"
the version I'm familiar with says...
"And we'll guard each one's dignity,
and save each one's pride"


(Actually, the old-fashioned versions say "man" instead of "one", but people who objected to non gender-inclusive language changed that.)

Yeah I think the version sung at church is the version you speak of. Its a classic that I just discovered - one of the reasons why I love being from a Russian church - old American traditions and songs are like new. :P
