Lord Jesus, Are We
One With Thee?
Lord Jesus, are we one with Thee?
O height, O depth of love!
Thou one with us on Calvary,
We one with Thee above.
Such was Thy Grace that for our sake
Thou didst from Heaven come down,
With us of flesh and blood partake,
In all our misery one.
Our sins, our guilt, in love Divine
Confessed and borne by Thee;
The gall, the curse, the wrath were Thine,
To set Thy members free.
Ascended now, in glory bright,
Head of the Church Thou art;
Nor life nor death, nor depth nor height,
Thy Saints and Thee can part.
Oh teach us, Lord, to know and own
This wondrous mystery,
That Thou in Heaven with us art one,
And we are one with Thee.
Soon, soon shall come that glorious day
When, seated on Thy throne,
Thou shalt to wondering worlds display
That Thou with us art one.
~By James George Deck ~
The Lord Jesus prayed:
That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me,
and I in thee, that they also may be one in us:
that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect
in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me,
and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
To the Saints, the Holy Spirit penned through the Apostle Paul:
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he
loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us
together with Christ, by (grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us
up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ
Jesus: That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches
of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. For by
grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the
gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God
hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope
of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and
Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure
of the gift of Christ.
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge
of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the
stature of the fullness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more
children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of
doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they
lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up
into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom
the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which
every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the
measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the
edifying of itself in love.
And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us,
and hath given himself for us an offering
and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savor.
