One Spirit


There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. Ephesians 4:4-6

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 our unity may one day be restored

           – Father Peter Scholtes

One Spirit

One frequency

One comforter

One teacher

One confirmation

One movement

One unction

One friend

One certainty

One change agent

One empowerment

One tie that binds

One helper

One belonging

One sealer

One guarantee

One mighty rushing wind

One conviction

One life giver

One interceder

One inspiration

One translator

One breath of God

One source of worship

One filling

One power

One witness

One overseer

One anointing

One Spirit of truth

One well of water springing up

One giver of gifts

One perfecter of the faith

One Spirit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, against which there is no law.

    Thank you for the thought, and thank you for reminding me of the song. I learned Christian folk/contemporary music when I taught at a Catholic school (unusual for a protestant). Peter Scholten, Sebastian Temple, Ray Repp, and I’m sure there were others. Good music with the core message.

    And the rest of Father Scholtes’ hymn that we sang when I was young (long ago)… And they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our love; yes they’ll know we are Christians by our love!
