Words: Doreen Lankshear-Smith Music: Jeeva Sam Arrangement: David Kai Tune: We Are One

We are one as we come, as we come, joyful to be here,

in the praise on our lips there's a sense that God is near.

We are one as we sing, as we seek, we are found;

and we come needful of God's grace as we meet, together in this place.

We are one as we share, as we share brokenness and fear,

in the touch of a hand there's a sense that God is here.

We are one as we care, as we heal, we are healed;

and we share warmth in God's embrace as we pray together in this place.

We are one as we feast, as we feast, peace becomes the sign;

in the bread and the wine there's a sense of love divine.

We are one as we come, as we feed, we are fed;

and we feel God's refreshing grace as we meet at table in this place.

We are one as we hear, as we hear, heart and hand unite;

in the word we receive there's a sense that God is light.

are one as we leave, as we love, we are loved;

and we seek justice in God's ways as we move together from this place.
