In Adam we have all been one,
One huge rebellious man;
We all have fled that Evening Voice
That sought us as we ran.
We fled Thee and in losing Thee
We lost our brother too;
Each singly claimed and sought his own;
Each one his brother slew.
But Thy Strong love, it sought us still
And sent us Thine only Son
That we might hear His Shepherd’s voice
And, hearing Him, be one.
O Thou who, when we loved Thee not,
Didst love and save us all,
Thou great Good Shepherd of mankind,
O hear us when we call.
Send us Thy Spirit, teach us truth;
Thou Son, O set us free
From fancied wisdom, self-sought ways,
To make us one in Thee.
Then shall our song united rise
To Thine eternal throne,
Where with the Father evermore
And Spirit Thou art One.
Hymn text by Martin H. Franzmann
What the world needs now is…to know the great love of God who sent His only Son to redeem sinful man and restore us to Himself and to one another. Let that be our prayer today!
God bless your day!
