For the past several years – at least 10 I’d say – our church has held a special service a few times a year which we call Fifth Sunday. This service is held on a Sunday afternoon when there is a fifth Sunday in the month.

Our daughter works and our sister churches (typical previous daughter works) come together in a glorious jubilee service. Afterward, we go down to our Family Life Center to enjoy a great time of dinner and fellowship.

It’s always a special time, but the Fifth Sunday Service we held on May 30th was extra special.

This was the first time everyone was able to get together in over a year. 

All of the churches were so excited. We were looking forward to enjoying a great meal, which was provided 100% by the church this time. But more importantly, we knew God was going to meet with us in a special way.

Oh my, did He!

Pastor preached an inspiring, challenging and motivating message about unity, not just among local churches, but among the Church. As the body of Christ, the representation of God here on this earth, what good are we doing for the world if we are not unified?

His message inspired me to write a song. Go figure. 😉

Without further ado, I’d like to share the lyrics here with you.

Stay tuned for a *hckm, roughly* recorded version!


Unified – God’s Plan for His People

inspired by Pastor’s message, “When Brothers Dwell in Unity”
based on Psalm 133 and John 17

 

verse 1

How good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell in unity
It’s like precious anointing
Flowing freely and giving us life
Forevermore
Lord we want to be

 

chorus

Unified
Dwelling as one
That’s God’s plan for His people
Unified
No discord in sight
That’s God’s plan for His people
When our will gets in the way
It tears us apart
But when we are surrendered
It brings us together
Unified 
Lord we want to be 
Unified

 

verse 2

Some of Jesus’s last words
We’re “Father keep those 
Whom thou hast given to me
That they may be one, as we are
That the world may believe”
Lord it’s our prayer to be

 

chorus

Unified
Dwelling as one
That’s God’s plan for His people
Unified
No discord in sight
That’s God’s plan for His people
When our will gets in the way
It tears us apart
But when we are surrendered
It brings us together
Unified 
Lord we want to be 
Unified

 

bridge 1

There is power
When we’re unified 
Faith’s built
When we’re unified
Walls fall
When we’re unified
Chains break
When we’re unified

 

bridge 2

God moves
When we’re unified
Bodies healed
When we’re unified
Souls saved
When we’re unified
Lord show us how to stay 

 

chorus

Unified
Dwelling as one
That’s God’s plan for His people
Unified
No discord in sight
That’s God’s plan for His people
When our will gets in the way
It tears us apart
But when we are surrendered
It brings us together
Unified 
Lord we want to be 
Unified
