One Voice

I have been writing a lot lately and I introduced one of them last Sunday.  The theme overall is UNITY.  This theme is important for a number of reasons:

  1. God asks for His followers to be as one body.  Jesus even prays over us (yes us today) in the book of John after He the last supper just before He and the disciples go to the garden of Gathsemene (John 17:20-23).
  2. Unity is a lost art in the Christian community (as seen by so many denominations).  Spirituality will express itself in a multitude of ways, which is good, but many of these factions are do to divisiveness.
  3. There is power when God’s people come together in unity to sing a unified prayer or praise!  We are encouraged and movement takes place in an unseen realm amidst this kind of participation.

Aaron Keyes taught in a worship set that the words “Hallelujah” and “Amen” mean the same thing in every language.  This stuck out to me and I have since meditated on that idea and wanted to express this in a song.  The bridge on One Voice becomes and application of the call presented in the verses and chorus as we sing those words and literally every tribe and tongue could join together in praise.

One Voice – Erik Thien, Josh Veillon

We have gathered in His name Saints of God sing out proclaim

Let us join with Angels sing lifting high the great and holy King

Oh Christ       be glorified…

With one voice, we’re giving You praise. With one song, united we stand

for one God, creator of all We are one, we are one

All you peoples lift your hands every tribe and every land

The redeemed will sing as one shouting louder than creations call

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah  Amen  Amen

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah  Amen  Amen
